This is a very rustic looking piece that has a bit of added bling in the gold foil that adorns one side and the painted gold filling in what was a natural hole in the bark. Nature, enhanced.
The gold foil is a composition leaf comprised of brass, copper, and zinc. The entire piece has been sealed to protect the wood and prevent tarnish. This pendant hangs on an 18 inch gold filled (14/20) open box chain and closes with a vermeil lobster clasp.
Pendant length 2 1/4 " width 3/4" gold filled chain 18 "
My line of birch bark jewelry is made from the bark of fallen trees. The bark is dried, cleaned and selected for use. It is then cut or torn, shaped, sanded and sealed which enhances the color and durability of the bark. Clean when needed with a gentle wipe of a jewelers cloth.
