Fine Silver Palmetto Pendant

Stylized Palmetto Tree from fine silver. You can't live in South Carolina for so long and not utilize a beautiful resource like our state tree! This multi-faceted process began with my stylized original sketch, progressed to a clay model, then a mold, then shaped silver clay, then the fun part - FIRING IT! Although each is individually hand-crafted in a labor intensive technique, there will a small edition from this original mold of my Palmetto Tree. This one graces a strand of semi-precious peridot and moonstone.
