Lost in the forest, I broke off a dark twig
and lifted its whisper to my thirsty lips:
maybe it was the voice of the rain crying,
a cracked bell, or a torn heart.

Something from far off it seemed
deep and secret to me, hidden by the earth,
a shout muffled by huge autumns,
by the moist half-open darkness of the leaves.

Wakening from the dreaming forest there, the hazel-sprig
sang under my tongue, its drifting fragrance
climbed up through my conscious mind

as if suddenly the roots I had left behind
cried out to me, the land I had lost with my childhood—
and I stopped, wounded by the wandering scent.
—Pablo Neruda

This real cottonwood leaf is preserved in antiqued sterling silver. The leaf sits as a backdrop to a wire-wrapped coil on coil vine adorned with sparkling gemstones of mystic topaz, juicy dark AA African amethyst, smoky quartz, and pyrope garnet.

The vine is an embellishment that I sketched and designed in past years to add my own unique touch to a longtime favorite.

The 18" antiqued and textured sterling silver chain holds accents of amethyst and pyrope garnet. It has an extender at the clasp for adjustability. The leaf is 2" wide and 2.25" high including the coiled vine at the top.


Arrives packaged in a gift box and ships within 1-3 business days of receipt of payment.
