A real weigela leaf is immortalised in fine silver (.999), paired with the delicate purple of amethyst and then hung from a sterling silver (.925) chain.
The process invloves making a paint from fine silver powder and a binding agent and applying several coats to a leaf from the garden. The leaf is then heated to about 900C which burns off the leaf and the binding agent and what is left behind is an imprint of the veins in fine silver.
Weigela leaf- 22mm x 11mm
Total pendant length from bail – 48mm x 11mm
Curb chain length – 16″
