A little lime green inlaid ginkgo leaf that is so delightful is suspended on a sterling silver omega chain. Before resting there, the ginkgo was designed and hand-carved in wax, was hand-poured at the caster's, was polished to a high-shine, and had hand-ground magnesite stones inlaid into its body. After that, the inlay was ground flush to the leaf, leaving a soft, matte texture on the front of the leaf. Such an elaborate process for such a simple, modern, and effortless looking piece! The ginkgo is unique and one of a kind. Little bits of variation sneak in in the casting process and in the grinding and inlaying process, that each piece will have its own personality.
**There are two greens to choose from, but this listing is for a single necklace. Please specify if you'd like the lighter or darker of the two in the Notes to Seller box at checkout. Please allow several days for me to make your necklace. Thanks!**
The ginkgo is threaded on an 18" omega chain. The ginkgo is just over 1" tall, 1" wide and 3-4mm thick. The chain is 1.35mm wide.
Turquoise is one of the birthstones for December.
