Angel Wing Begonia Leaf Necklace


I love houseplants but they don't always love me! My angel wing begonia called "Sophie Cecile" actually loves me back. I find it a beautifully unique and easy to grow houseplant. The leaves have some of the most beautiful colors and patterns on them you will ever see. That is why I wanted to create these necklaces in her honor. 

I use a *real* leaf that I pressure press into the silver to leave behind a unique and one of a kind pattern for each one. I give them a darkening patina to really bring out the veining pattern and then twist and twirl the leaf edges so they resemble their real cousins. The leaves are about 2 inches long including their twisty stems and they are about .75 inches wide. Since each one of them is cut out by hand, they all will be slightly different. The joy of handmade!

Each leaf will come to you on an 18 inch long sterling silver necklace and be nestled in a sweetly decorated gift box making them perfect for gift giving!

Custom made to order pieces such as this necklace are made for you within 1-2 weeks before they are mailed off to you.
