Cottonwood Gold Plate Leaf Earrings
About the product
These Cottonwood Gold real leaf earrings are stunning and can be worn with our matching folia pendant collection. Each earring measure approximately 50mm x 50mm.
Our stunning leaves are skeletonised to leave their veins intact. The leaf is then preserved through electroforming, a process where the leaf is slowly encased in copper to strengthen it. The leaf is finished in a heavy layer of 24-carat gold. Their size, shape and patination will vary, enhancing their individual nature and creating a truly unique piece of jewellery.
The Cottonwood tree was sacred to Native Americans, especially in the south-west. This tree is considered holy because it can often grow where other trees cannot. The cottonwood tree was viewed as symbolic of the sun. The cottonwood bark and leaves were frequently used for their medicinal remedies and in particular, to treat wounds and swelling.
All of our jewellery is beautifully packaged as standard in our environmentally friendly gift boxes.
