Beautiful Ginkgo Leaf Pendants. Made using the impression from a real ‘Ginkgo Biloba’ leaf. Glazed in a subtle white shiny glaze with light green shading and platinum lustre detailing.
I use a real Ginkgo Biloba leaf to create the leaf impression in clay and then form the shape into a beautiful unique pendant. My Ginkgo Leaf pendants are distinctive and bold, yet feminine with their subtle colours and curves. The ancient leaves are symbolic of longevity and endurance. They are the oldest trees on the planet and can live for over 1 thousand years.
I use porcelain to make each piece, firing to 1020 bisque initially, then 1260 to mature the porcelain and glaze. The third firing allows platinum lustre to mature on the edges and texturing, enhancing the attractive shape of the leaves.
Dimensions: typically 7 cm length drop x 6 cm at widest point.
Each pendant is threaded with an 18″ silver plated chain.
Please sit in a carpeted room when putting your jewellery on (instead of a room with a tiled floor). Porcelain is durable but behaves just as glass or Swarovski crystal, so it will shatter if dropped on a hard surface. Please use a silver cloth to clean your chain to retain its sparkle over time.
Each pendant is unique so there will variations on the depth of subtle green tint, shape and platinum detailing. The images above give you examples of 4 typical pendants. If you want a specific depth of colour or variation on shape/size please contact me and I will make a bespoke pendant for you (3-4 weeks delivery).
