Oak Leaf Clusters in a mix of Silver, Brass and Oxidised Copper.
I like to work with recycled materials, so it should come as no surprise that these Oak Leaf Clusters are made from recycled EcoSilver and industry off-cuts of brass and copper.
The leaves are individually hand cut with a fine jewellers saw. I then polish them to a smooth finish before being doming and curving the metal. For these pendants I have handcrafted a twisted wire bail from EcoSilver wire and each cluster consists of two contrasting oak leaves.
These pendants are slightly heavier than the single leaves, so I have chosen to hang them from 50cm and 76cm chains.
