This piece starts with a plain piece of green tin that I cut, file, finish smooth and then etch in vein lines. Hammering the edge creates the final feathered effect making for a bit more organic and realistic. The stem of the leaf is rolled and strung on a steel ring and a matching tin bead is used as the bail.
Not in love with bright green? This pendant can be made from almost any color you can dream up. My tin collection is THAT vast! Just leave a message of the color you would like and I'll get started making it.
The pendant is about 2.25" (57mm) wide and strung on a simple 18" (56cm) long, 1.2mm silver finish chain with a standard spring ring clasp.
All adaptive reuse pieces come to you neatly displayed on an upcycled card and sustainably wrapped ready for gift-giving.
Please contact me if you have any other questions.
I’ve recently partnered with the non-profit One Tree Planted. $1 from your order today will plant a tree somewhere on the globe.
