Beautifully handcrafted silver mint leaf earrings - created using leaves growing in my herb garden. I normally use them straight from the garden when cooking or making mint tea but wondered how the delicate texture would look when tranformed into silver.
Make a real statement when worn.
Ideal for nature & garden lovers like me.
These leaves are unique pieces as I use silver clay made into a paste. This is then coated onto a freshly picked leaf and left to dry. Over a number of days, layer upon layer is added until the piece is thick enough. Then it is placed into a kiln where the leaf is burnt away leaving behind the imprint in solid silver. At this stage it is no longer fragile and can be turned into jewellery, in this case adding the sterling silver loops to allow them to be made into dangly earrings!
Length of leaf = 35mm
