Final Payment

Hand Made sterling necklace with elegant gingko leaves. Entirely hand tooled, from each line of the subtly ruffly leaves, to the hand worked omega choker. Every furl of the leaves are made with long, hammered lines. Front and back of the leaves are patterned with organic marks. There's an exquisite old layered patina, the largest leaf has a mottled smoky look, and the smaller one, an almost iridescent, pinkish-centered patina. The piece is entirely unsigned, but for the very old mark of sterling under the stem of one leaf. I've been unable to find anything like this in books or online, and believe it to be a one of a kind piece. The manner of execution and its mark are distinctly Arts & Crafts, a movement about 100 years old. Though the use of an omega would make this piece significantly ahead of its time. This may possibly be the work of Claude Lalanne, wife of French sculptor François-Xavier Lalanne. More research is underway, and any information would be most welcome. An outstanding hand made sterling gingko necklace unlike anything I've ever found.

Interior diameter is roughly 15 inches / 38 cm
