These ginkgo leaves were handcut out of copper, filed smooth and hammered for plenty of texture and curved edges. Sterling silver ear wires have been soldered to the back. The pair was then heavily oxidized and carefully polished to achieve the gradual color change. They are sealed with preservation wax which will make them keep their patina for a long time. This pair is on the large side (see pic 4) but not heavy. You will feel them brush gently against your cheek but they will not weigh down your ears.
Total length is 65 mm (2 3/5") and the leaf is 35 mm.
