Ginkgo biloba earrings
Fine silver Ginkgo biloba leaf earrings. Sterling silver earwires.
I am lucky enough to have a mature Ginkgo biloba tree in the garden outside my studio which kindly shares some of its beautiful leaves with me. The leaves were dried and painted with many layers of fine silver before being kiln fired. During the firing process the leaves burn away and the silver sinters creating fine silver versions of the real leaves. Each piece created in this way is completely unique.
