Ginkgo leaf pendant … A ginko leaf is a beautifully simple form, it is therefore the inspiration for this pendant. The ginkgo shape is sawn out of 1mm thick silver sheet. The leaf is approximately 3.5cm by 3.5cm. Furthermore, fine lines are hand drawn onto the front surface of the ginkgo leaf, it looks more authentic as a result.
The ginkgo leaf hangs from a16 inch (41,5cm) silver snake chain. In addition to the design of the pendant, the catch it also individually made. Handmade in silver specially for the pendant and innate to my jewellery. A dome and ring which fit neatly into each other, hence closing the catch is simple.
A most noteworthy fact about the ginkgo tree, is that fossils have been found dating back 270 million years.
