Ginkgo Biloba fine silver earrings


These Ginkgo long earrings are from 11 -year-old old ginkgo tree. Every year I save and press some of the smaller leaves and using a precious metal slip they are painted in up to 14 layers drying delicately in between coats. the slip is Precious metal clay that is fine pure silver in an organic binder once fired the organic binder is burnt away along with the leaf and a cast of it in pure silver remains. Here I have also included some granulation work with small beads of silver
