Small Silver Gingko Pendant
Handmade from an impression of a real ginkgo leaf impressed into fine silver clay. The beautiful leaf hangs from a sterling silver rolo chain that is interspersed with varying shades of green and blue seed beads. The pendant and chain were given a darkening patina, and then polished to a high shine; leaving the patina in the recesses of the design allows it to really stand out.
Length is 17 1/2 inches.
Fine silver pendant is 3/4 by 3/4 wide.
Sterling silver rolo chain interspersed with shades of blue and green seed beads.
Sterling silver hook clasp.
Fine silver clay consists of fine silver particles and an organic binder. After forming, drying and refining the piece is fired in a kiln. During this time the binder burns off and the result is a piece that is .999 pure silver.
