Sterling Silver Ginko Leaves

These are definitely my favorite earrings from this week! While out walking, I found a tiny Ginkgo leaf that was so very pretty.
I took the leaf back to my studio and made these lovely earrings: I traced the leaf onto a thick sheet of Sterling Silver, then hand-cut the shape out, filed the edges, used a Graver to etch the leaf veins, soldered the stem onto 18 gauge wire (for the ear hooks) and then finished by oxidizing the leaves.
More leaf-inspired jewelry is on the way!
