A Unique Copper Leaf Necklace, part of the Luxe Originals Collection, features a handmade, hammered copper metal leaf. Wire Wrapped brown freshwater pearls are perfectly matched with a double strand of neutral glass beads and silk ribbon. A copper toggle clasp makes it easy to slip on and off.
The Copper leaf was cut from sheet metal then hammered using a fold forming technique to add texture and depth. The process actually involves several hammering sessions until the leaf is shaped perfectly. Each leaf is then patinated twice, once with a torch and then a second time with Liver of Sulphur to get that rich brown shade with hints of red. It is then hand polished and buffed for the perfect sheen.
Each pearl is individually wire wrapped to a hand twisted wire that runs the length of the leaf and doubles as a bail. Spiral ends add a vine like organic design.
This necklace is about 17" and the pendant is about 2" long.
A perfect fall accessory for sweaters or layered looks. Would make a beautiful gift for mom. This necklace will arrive in a cotton filled box stuffed into an organza bag ready for gift giving.
Some of my designs are one of a kind such as this one. What you see is what you get. Because I use natural stones in my designs they are inherently imperfect but beautiful. This makes this design unique.

Due to costs of materials, I sometimes choose to use Gold Filled elements in my designs.
Gold Filled elements contain an actual layer of gold pressure bonded to another metal, such as silver or brass. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as gold filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating.
Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. Gold Filled elements are regulated by Government Standards where gold plated elements are not. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors.
Anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry. Gold filled jewelry is an economical alternative to solid gold and is generally considered keepsake or heirloom quality.
