Gorgeous Electro-Formed Leaf and Pine Cone Pendants and Charms....
We travelled long and far (to Arizona) to source these pretties
for you - our little eyes lit up when we saw these and to be honest, we more
or less drooled...(don't worry, we didn't drool on any of these ones...)
These natural leaves and cones are preserved within a real
silver, copper or gold layer. Gathered sustainably in the wild, to skeletonise
the leaf, it is first soaked in a solution that dissolves the fleshy parts
of the leaf leaving the 'skeleton'; this is then slowly dried, then coated
with varnish to stiffen and make it easier to work with. The leaf is then
hand painted with a copper based paint which makes it electrically conductive.
Silver, more copper, or gold is then electro deposited onto the painted surface;
other processes cause the spectacular iridescent colouring shown on some of
the copper leaves and cones.
We hope you'll agree these were worth a trip through the desert,
the snow, the heat (and that was all on one day....)
The pendants are one-of-a-kind;
all are beautiful, each is different, simply check/ tick their box then
