A bar of recycled sterling silver, textured with a real skeleton leaf, front and back and given a satin finish, with a hidden bail
I have chosen a 4mm smooth dark amber, of a beautiful cognac shade to mount on the front, but if you would like one made with a different gemstone or texture, please contact me as I'll be able to make it to order, usually within a week - 10 days (depending if I have the stone you require in stock)
The pendant shown hangs 36mm from the chain and is 10mm wide, 41mm long
All the metal is recycled sterlng silver and weighs just over 4.5g

Sterling Silver will eventually oxidise or tarnish. It's a natural process that can be slowed down by regular wear and by keeping unworn items away from the atmosphere. If you leave your jewellery out on display, this oxidisation will be faster. You can polish up your items, with a soft cloth, some silver polish, or a buffing cloth such as Town Talk, which is readily available from any high street jewellers in the UK
Fine silver is 99.9% silver, and because of this the tarnish rate is much, much slower. Again, a buff should do the job for polishing it back up. If I have patinated your silver already, be gentle when buffing!
Each piece should stand up to regular wear, but , as with all jewellery, please remove it before washing, using chemicals or applying perfume etc
Apply body lotion and perfume a few minutes before putting on your jewellery to help slow down tarnish
The sterling silver used in these items was sold to me by my bullion dealer as certified recycled.
The gemstones I use have been sold to me by reputable dealers as untreated (unless stated specifically in the listing). They are a natural, organic creation from the earth and each one will be slightly different. You can see examples of this on my Facebook page.
I select the stones that I think go together best for each project, hence my comments that each item is individual.
