A simple leaf design handmade with recycled sterling silver and an ethically mined and cut Australian green sapphire.
Perfect for everyday wear and also for layering up.
Measuring just over 5mm wide and 14mm high and nearly 3mm deep.
I have melted down scrap silver and then hammered it until it is 3mm thick. Then hand pierced (sawed) out the leaf shape.
I have curled the stem of the leaf so it twists around the necklace chain.
To set the sapphire, I burr out the silver to the exact same shape as the gemstone and burnish the metal onto the gem to lock it in. (No glue or solder!)
Thank you for your interest in my work,
