A one-of-a-kind necklace with two solid silver succulents made from unique and un-repeatable plant castings.
The plant pieces are cast directly from cuttings of real life succulents. The organic cuttings are surrounded in plaster and then burnt away in a super hot kiln leaving a highly detailed hollow space inside. Molten precious metal, close to 1000 degrees Celsius, is then poured into the mould to fill the space where the plants once were. With bated breath, the plaster is then broken away to reveal if the plant replicas have successfully been formed in solid sterling silver. There is no rival for the unique beauty and detail produced by this process!
This necklace is handcrafted in solid sterling silver. The succulents have been oxidised to accentuate the voluminous leaves in the plants.
The succulents measure 3.5cm across.
The total length of the necklace, including the chain, measures 50cm. Requests for a longer or shorter lengths are most welcome.
Oxidised and brushed sterling silver.
