Sterling Silver Japanese Maple Leaf Necklace
This sterling silver pendant has been imprinted with a real Japanese Maple leaf. After I imprinted the leaf I hand cut the silver leaf's edges, and formed the leaf with a hammer. I then hand finished it, giving it an oxidized patina to highlight the delicate veins of the leaf. The stem has been formed into a bail. This life-size leaf measures approximately 2-3/4" x 2-1/4". It hangs from a 20" oxidized sterling silver chain.
