Sweet Angelica Leaves! Everything about them is endearing, from their natural, heart-shape to their symbolic meaning of "from the heavens"! I have Angelica leaves in my Woods and Willow collection but thought I would frame the Angelica leaf with a Mandala shaped charm. The gentle curve of design lends itself to the shape of the natural leaf. The handmade charm itself is about 1 1'4" long. I used Precious Metal Clay that when fired in my kiln for hours, transforms into solid Sterling Silver. It's the perfect medium for capturing those beautiful, deep veins on the surface of these leaves because I carefully press the actual leaves into the Precious Metal Clay.
I offer several different lengths of chains in the variation menu. The chain I selected is a delicate linked design that is Gold Filled.
I lightly oxidized the charm to further enhance the details and then accented the center veins with 22kt Genuine Gold. I love how the two types of precious metals play off one another.
I also have a pair of earrings that complement this beautiful necklace.
