I just love, love, love how these necklaces turned out, if I do say so myself!

They are made from real leaves which have been painted in silver clay paste (the back of the leaf is painted, the veiny bit).  I fire them in my kiln for about 30 minutes at 650℃, the leaf then burns away and the pure silver leaf is left with all the detail, how cool!
Once I had brushed them I oxidized them and then burnished the edges to really make them sparkle and twinkle in the light. I hope you like them and you can now find them in my Etsy shop :)
