Introduction: Rolled Leaf Sculptural Pendant

Picture of Rolled Leaf Sculptural Pendant

This pendant started life as an interesting rolled-up leaf. Many coats of fine silver precious metal clay were painted on, layer by layer. Then the silver was heated by a torch until the leaf burned away and the silver fused where the leaf had been. A lavender cubic zirconia was inset on the sculpture and details added. Many have commented on its unique, loveliness pendant.

You can see this and other jewelry I have made at the Aspiring Arts website.

Thanks for your compliment! All the details I remember are on here; I made this pendant maybe five years ago. It's entered into the I made it! contest. If you like it, please vote for it! :-) If there's enough interest, I will try to recreate what I did and post a full instructable.
