For this flirty spring necklace I paired an enameled leaf with a handmade chain that consists of fused links, that I formed into a leaf shapes, faceted peridot, Caribbean blue apatite, and white South Sea saltwater keishi pearls. The focal leaf is enameled with a grass green, front and back and has a cluster of gemstones nestled in front. It hangs from an Argentium sterling silver leaf I formed and hammered. I finished it with a small spiral swan clasp.

This asymmetrical necklace measures 17 inches long with a 1 inch extender chain. The Japanese Hop leaf pendant is 43 mm x 39 mm, or 1 3/4 inches long.

A note on precious metal clay:                                                                                       ArtClay silver is a recycled product that consists of fine silver particles suspended in an organic binder. The clay can be worked like other forms of clay, sculpted to almost any shape you desire. The product is then fired at an extremely high temperature, either by kiln or torch. The binder burns away resulting in a pure silver (.999) piece. The silver is reclaimed from such sources as 35mm film and medical and industrial leftovers. No strip mining necessary.

The leaf is created by painting several layers of silver paste on the back side of leaves, then firing in a kiln. The leaf burns away leaving the fab leaves in pure silver. Then a first coat of transparent enamel is applied, then fired again. This happens several times to achieve the desired affect.
