Precious Metal Clay, 24KT Genuine Gold Accents, Olive Leaves, My Love of Nature, Sterling Silver Chain
Sterling Silver Cross Necklace, Olive Leaf Necklace, Religious Necklace, Meaningful Necklace, Botanical Necklace
Deep within the symbolic meaning of the Olive leaf was the catalyst for this cross necklace design. The Olive Leaf with its elongated shape is filled with meanings of peace and victory over challenges. The origins of this necklace come small Olive leaves from a tree in my garden. I carefully pressed these petite leaves into Precious Metal clay that captured the very small detailing from the leaves. When fired in my kiln for hours, this clay transforms into Sterling Silver. I overlapped two Olive leaves and added 24KT Genuine Gold accenting to the top leaf giving high gloss and warmth from the glow of the Gold. This leaf necklace is highly polished and is situated horizontally and hangs from an 18" Sterling Silver chain, but I can make this symbolic necklace any length you want.
Olive leaves, rich in symbolism in Sterling and Gold.....Enjoy!
