This beautiful ginkgo biloba leaf was cast from a natural ginkgo leaf I collected while spending time in downtown Chicago, the trees were beautifully lining the streets. It dangles from a 14K gold filled chain.
Each leaf is pressed into a mold made from the natural ginkgo leaf, then cut out and sanded by hand using metal clay and is kiln fired and finished to this beautiful and unique solid metal piece of jewelry. Variations are to be expected and enjoyed!
Chain length measures approximately 17"L + 2"L extender chain - total length is 19"L and has a spring ring clasp.
Select between a polished finish or matte (kiln patina) finish on the leaf.
Polished finish leaf has a decorative 14K gold filled cable chain; Matte finish leaf has a plain cable 14K gold filled chain
*14K gold-filled is an actual layer of 14 carat gold - pressure bonded onto a base metal. It is not gold-plate - it has more gold than gold-plating, will not flake off and is far more valuable and tarnish resistant.
*Bronze is composed of 90% copper and 10% tin and is nickel free.
