This is a real leaf that has been coated with copper. Each leaf is totally unique and this is a smaller than normal leaf of approximately 3.5cm in length. You will receive the leaf pictured. The leaf is veins show up beautifully in the dense copper coating and the chain is copper plate and is 18in or 46cm long and fastens with a lobster claw clasp into a 5cm extension chain meaning the pendant can be worn from 18" to 20". The leaf is not hallmarked. This is the last one of these smaller maple leaves.
The pendant will arrive in a presentation box.
Silver, Gold and Copper leaves are made from real hand picked leaves. Each leaf is soaked in a special solution that dissolves the fleshy parts of the leaf leaving the veins and skeleton intact. Each leaf is then coated with varnish to preserve and stiffen to make them easier to handle. The surface is then hand painted with a copper based paint that conducts electricity. Once the natural surface is coated with the copper metal we are able to electroform or (electroplate) silver or gold onto the leaf. The result is a beautiful leaf that is preserved in precious metal.
