An age-old symbol of England, teamed up with an exotic Tahitian pearl from the warm waters of the Pacific for a modern take on a classic subject.
Plants, leaves and flowers are classic jewellery subjects. Some of the earliest gold jewellery ever discovered were leaf and flower motifs, cut from fine sheets of gold.
Initially hand-carved from wax then cast in solid sterling silver, the surface of this oak leaf undulates in a naturalistic fashion, the result being that light dances across the surface.
The Tahitian pearl, which has subtle green and aubergine undertones and a blemish free skin, hangs from a textured ‘cap’, and adds playful movement .
This is a one-off, unique piece, but should you be interested in commissioning something along similar lines, please do not hesitate to contact me for a quote.
