An intriguing leaf shaped necklace influenced by the Celery Pine tree or Tānekaha. Cleverly cast in sterling silver from a handmade original carving by Tania. Finished with a sterling silver chain and clasp.
"I would often see these leaves on the ground on bush walks and didn't know what they were from but liked their shape. After a bit of research I made an interesting discovery. They are from a commonly found tree in our native bush here in Aotearoa New Zealand... but they are actually not really leaves at all! These trees are part of the Phyllocladaceae family and what appear to be their leaves are in fact small, flattened twigs which function as leaves and carry out photosynthesis. Fascinating stuff!"
This necklace has a lovely weight to it and much like Tania's other jewellery pieces is designed with comfort at the forefront. The detail has been hand etched and the shape of the leaf sits beautifully against the chest.
Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% pure silver. The alloy composition results in a metal that is very durable and long lasting. Sterling silver is easily polished using a polishing cloth. Tania Mallow jewellery is certified sterling silver.
