This heavenly rainbow spectrum, botanical leaf jewel is made with layers of transparent iridescent mirrored Dichroic art glass and a real leaf that I collected from the wilds of the Alaskan outdoors. The leaf has been through an extremely time consuming process of a heated acid treatment to "skeletonize" it and sealed forever inside the layers of beautiful glass. The top layer of the leaf jewel is a domed crystal clear glass for the sake of form and a little of the fun magnification highlighting the lovely intricate botanical detail of the leaf inside. The transparent glass lets more light in through the back of the jewel to further enhance the full luminescence and color with plays of light while you are wearing it.
The above photos are all of the same piece to give you an idea of the beautiful spectrum of color and light display. This necklace is a movie star.
This has been created using the eco friendly, totally lead free Tiffany style soldering method similar to that used in our drinking water systems. The solder I use is made of a combination of simple and safe tin and silver. The size of the leaf jewel is available in a daintier 14 mm or the featured size, 18 mm. The pendant is totally waterproof and can be worn during everyday activities, just be careful with harsh chemicals or acids like vinegar as this can oxidize the metal bezel. Safe cleaning can be done with mild detergents and a soft cloth to dry.
Please note that the necklace you receive will be just a little bit unique as each is made by hand with slight variations in art glass and natural leaf selection.
♡ ♡ Neck chains are a dainty looking but super strong stainless steel 1.2 mm flat sparkly oval chain in your choice of length.
This arrives beautifully gift boxed and packaged with a nice product description card ready to wear or give as a gift with no need to rewrap. Shipping will be USPS First Class Mail, which leaves here via airplane for a speedy delivery to your destination.
