Fine silver and gold windfall lichen bracelet
Fine silver and 22 carat gold windfall lichen on sterling silver bangle.
Bangle measures 17.5cm and has a hook and ring closure.
I found this piece of windfall lichen in the ancient woodland next to my studio after a windy night. The lichen was painted with many layers of fine silver and kiln fired. During firing the lichen burns away and the silver sinters creating fine silver versions of the lichen. A layer of 22 carat gold was then added to the top side of the lichen.
Each piece created in this way is completely unique.
