A one of a kind sterling leaf neck ring created with a beautifully detailed reticulated sterling leaf on heavy sterling round wire neck ring. The neck ring aka torc ends at the leaf top in a gentle swirl of twisted vine to hold the leaf where it attaches to the leaf center vein. This twisted wire swirl is hammered to lay flat on the neck. The neck ring is created with 2.6mm round sterling wire. The leaf was cut in the shape from a hydraenga shrub from my own garden. This necklace will truly be one to last and cherish.

The sterling leaf focal was created using a technique called reticulation which creates swirls and hills and valleys of pure silver using well controlled heat from the torch. This pattern can never be re-created since the techique of many heatings and coolings never leaves the same pattern on any other piece of metal. I have adorned the leaf with a simple vein from top to tip. The closure is a forged hook from the neck wire which fits into a slot in the leaf which makes the torc easy to get on and off. The neck wire has been lightly hammered to strengthen it and create a springyness to help retain it's shape. Slight adjustments can be make if needed for it to lay on your neck properly.

As shown, the leaf on this neck ring or torq will lie just below the hollow of your neck. Make no mistake, this is a statement piece of art jewelry. The leaf, from where it attaches to the swirl on the neck ring is a full 3 inches long from bail to tip. Leaf is 2.25 inches wide. I have designed this piece so the leaf slightly tips upward when hooked in the clasp. I picture this worn with an elegant black dress, a fabulous colored sweater or on anything with an open scooped neckline. This one will be a show stopper!

The full length of the neck ring excluding the leaf is 17 inches, diameter when closed, at it's widest is 6 inches. This neck ring should fit all but the smallest or largest women's neck sizes. I am happy to oxidize this neck ring if desired. The dark patina, with polished raised areas will add a phenomenal dimension to this piece.

Your necklace will ship in a box suitable for gift giving. I will incluse jewelry care instructions and a sqaure of Sunshine polishing cloth to keep your necklace shiny and bright.

This item will ship USPS Priority insured with tracking in the US and first class international insured with tracking everywhere else. Shipping upgrades are available in the US and internationally. Please contact me in advance for a quote and reserve listing to reflect the shipping upgrade.
