These fine silver earrings are handcrafted using real leaves from my garden. Their natural curved shape catches the light as they move, and every vein and tiny detail of the leaf can be seen. The leaves used for these earrings leave their impression forever in silver. No two are ever alike, just as no two leaves are ever the same.

The lever back earring wires are sterling silver. The leaves are lightly oxidized to bring out the texture of the veins. They hang 35mm (around an inch and a half), the measurement includes the earring wire.

About Metal Clay/Fine Silver and my process:

These unique items are made from metal clay. Metal clay is made from eco-friendly reclaimed silver. The pure silver particles recovered from the photo developing process and mixed with a binder made of water and plant-based organic materials. In raw form, it's malleable like clay. When fired, it becomes a fine [.999] silver piece of metal.

Every piece is unique. Each piece is made from raw silver with loving care and attention to every detail from start to finish by hand. They are shaped, sanded, and fired in a kiln at 1650 degrees for hours for maximum strength and durability. They are then hand polished, tumbled with steel shot for more shine and work-hardened strength, then oxidized and polished by hand again. The finished product is 99.9% pure fine silver that does not tarnish as easily as sterling. Tiny lines and flaws are characteristic of metal clay and add to its artisan feel. No two pieces are ever alike.


The difference between fine silver and sterling silver is that fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. Sterling is 92.5% silver, with the rest being other metals such as copper and tin. They look and wear the same. You can polish and care for them the same, but fine silver is more tarnish-resistant than sterling. Fine silver is almost pure silver, which makes it a more precious and valuable metal than sterling silver.
