This hand formed, nature inspired Anthos Large Leaf Necklace has handmade 14k gold filled or sterling silver leaves filled with hand mixed turquoise blue resin.
Anthos, which means flower in Greek is my collection inspired by nature. Each leaf and petal is expertly assembled to form a striking piece of statement jewelry that is one of a kind and lays lightly on your chest.
Approximate size of leaf area: width (3.5") length (4")
I make these with an adjustable chain, ranging from 16" to 18" If you would like your chain longer or shorter, please message me.
Each necklace comes attached to a jewelry card and packaged in a gift ready jewelry box including a polishing cloth and care instruction card.
I take great care in selecting the materials I use for my jewelry. It is important to me that the metal I use is beautiful, of the highest quality, while also being strong enough to be worn frequently.
I use 14k gold filled instead of gold plating because of its durability, strength and resistance to tarnish. Gold plating often flakes off quickly and tarnishes easily. Real gold is too soft for everyday wear. My gold filled jewelry can be worn daily and will last for years if maintained properly.
All of my silver jewelry is made with sterling silver. Sterling silver holds up well when soldered and doesn’t tarnish easily. I also love the way silver highlights different dimensions of color in my hand mixed resin.
As gold filled can not be cast I use solid bronze for my hand cast components. Bronze compliments the gold well and has an earthy quality to it as it wears.
