Real Leaf Charm in Sterling Silver


This beautifully detailed charm started off as a real leaf.

Fine silver powder was mixed with a liquid binding agent, this was then painted on the leaf. After several coats, the leaf was heated in a kiln to around 900 degrees. This burnt off the leaf and evaporated the binding agent and left behind was a fine silver imprint.

Fine silver is 99.9% silver, it has a higher shine than sterling silver and doesn’t tarnish. The jump ring and lobster clasp are both sterling silver (92.5%).
