I used small sage leaves from my garden as the impression for these earrings. The same leaf was pressed into moist Precious metal clay so that I had an almost identical pair. The texture on sage leaves is beautifully intricate and detailed. A wonder of nature that lends itself so well to silver metal clay.
After firing in the kiln, I burnished them with 24K gold along the center leaf vein. I painted the outer part with patina to showcase the gold.
These sweet little earrings are great for everyday wear or special occasions.
Dimensions : 1 inch X 1/2 inch. Sterling silver ear wires. These can be switched to comfortable sterling silver clip ons for an additional charge.
PLEASE NOTE: This specific pair of earrings just sold. However you can request a custom pair to be made. It will not be identical to the first since I make each piece from scratch and the application of gold and patina as well as the leaf size may be slightly different.
