A paint was made from a fine silver powder and a glycerol based binding agent. Several coats were then applied to the leaf. The leaf next went into the kiln and heated to about 900 degrees where the leaf was burnt off and the binding agent was vaporised.
Fine silver (.999) is used to get that extra shine, also it is more resistant to tarnishing. The clasp and ring are made from sterling silver (.925).
All Brigantium Designs’ jewellery comes in a gift box.
