Bronze Maple Leaf Pendant
This Bronze Maple Leaf Pendant is so detailed! You can see every little vein and all the blemishes of the original leaf!
We just love using real nature to make our Bronze Leaves (or indeed the Silver ones!)
This Leaf measures approximately 5.5 x 4.5 cm and has a weight of nearly 10 gm, but is not heavy or cumbersome to wear. It is on a black leather cord and is fastened with a lobster clasp. The cord is approximately 48 cm long.
This gorgeous Bronze Maple Leaf Pendant will be dispatched to you wrapped in tissue in one of our logo pillow boxes made of recycled card.
There’s a wonderful range of colours in the Bronze Clays. They range from a silvery white to a colour that is almost copper. So as a result Allie often makes pieces that are multicoloured !
All the Bronzes oxidise naturally over time, so a little polish now and then will keep it shiny. Although a lot of people like the antique look this patina gives the metal. Mainly because the pieces appear to have been excavated from an ancient site.
We make all of our Bronze and Silver items using Metal Clays. These consist of very fine, recycled, metal particles mixed with an organic binder. This results in a material that looks and behaves just like ordinary pottery clay.
However, when it is fired in a kiln, at temperatures exceeding 800 degrees Celsius, the binder burns away and the Metal Particles fuse together. This is a process called sintering and it causes a new piece of metal to form, in whatever shape we have sculpted or moulded it.
We think that It’s very much like Magic !
