Behind our neighbor's 1896 stone Victorian home, complete with a turret and beautiful stained glass windows, is a huge old ginkgo tree. As ginkgo trees are very slow growing, I believe that this tree must be almost the same age as the house! The tree's leaves all turns a magnificent yellow in autumn, and then in one day, all the leaves rain down and form a golden blanket around its massive trunk. It is from this tree's leaves that I made a mold to make these earrings.
This leaf has been recreated in .999 fine silver, and accented with my trademark vine swirl pendant/enhancer. At the end is a gorgeous, sparkly green peridot gemstone, cut in a faceted pear shape, and set securely in a prong setting.
These pendant measure just over 1-7/8" long and about 3/4" wide, including the enhancer bail.
The sterling silver enhancer bail hinges open and snaps shut to allow you to wear the pendant over a large chain, beads, pearls, ribbon, etc.
