Lacy Leaf

This stunning aspen leaf necklace takes more than seven hours to make, from harvest to the finished piece. Each one begins with a real aspen leaf, made semi-transparent through an intricate filigree process that exposes the lacy vein structure. Next, a delicate layer of copper is applied to each leaf to strengthen and preserve it. The leaves are then hand-dipped in antique gold, producing a lustrous finish that preserves the essence of nature's design. Suspended from a 14k gold fill chain, the golden leaf makes an elegantly organic statement paired with any ensemble. Handmade by Michale Dancer in Corte Madera, California.

Because this lady that I purchased it for is a very classy lady who enjoys the uniqueness of anything she wears.. She told me she loved it, she has seen nothing like it and cannot wait to wear it and how beautiful it was. Yesterday I purchase an additional gift from Uncommon Goods that I hope she will also love.

I bought this to wear for my wedding in November. My fiancé works in the tree removal service and we are going to Aspen CO for our honeymoon. I thought the gold Aspen leaf would be perfect. It's not as delicate as the photo indicates, but it is still very pretty. It will be beautiful, but I do wish it was as delicate as the photo.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Antique Gold Aspen Necklace:

      The leaf is solid and pretty enough, but the chain is of the thinnest quality I have ever seen. It will not hold up and is short in length. Before I can wear this I will have to change out the chain and with the cost of the pendant, I think it is overpriced.

          My husband NEVER buys me jewelry, so I was completely stunned when I opened this little box. We go camping and fishing up in the Sierras and the Aspen trees make such a lovely noise when the wind blows through. This is such a beautiful and unique necklace....I adore it and the special meaning it has for me is so sweet.
