Hand Carved Leaves

A few years ago I made a commissioned holly leaf charm. I had so much positive feedback about it and was asked to make more so I decided to make a slightly different one as part of my stock items. I've also made an oak leaf.

 

Below is the finished wax carving of the new holly leaf ready to have a mould made so it can be reproduced in silver... 

 

 

All cast... Just about to add the top rings...

 

 

The holly leaf on a hammered bangle...

 

 

The holly leaf on a necklace...

 

 

Why wear one leaf, when you can wear two? Double-up - these two pieces look great worn together... 

 

 

The oak leaf wax carving...

 

 Cast in silver...

 

 

Top rings on, just a bit of polishing for these oak leaves now... 

 

 

I decided to make two different necklace using the oak leaf, check them out below. The two oak leaf necklaces are great statement pieces which can be teamed up with shorter necklaces; especially the acorn pieces.

 

 

 This one has the 'Small Acorn Charm' attached at the side... 

 

All these pieces are available from my Etsy shop. (Link on SHOP page)

 

I've got some other leaves in mind to make in the future, but if you have any leaves you would like making in silver (or gold) please let me know.
