:: Desert Willow ::

An experiment in silver produced these deeply textured silver leaves.  I used a very unpredictable torch technique to allow chance to drive the process and was delighted with the result.  The leaves resemble the long, sinuous curves of our native desert willows which bloom profusely even in the fierce heat of summer.  They curl inward, with bright edges framing dark interiors full of earthen texture.  To finish these lightweight sterling leaves, I carefully sanded all rough and sharp spots away before applying the deepest possible patina.   The edges and selected areas were then sanded to a matte finish.  The simple hammered ear wires are 20 gauge sterling silver.

These look stunning when worn.  They are very contemporary, yet timeless, and weigh next to nothing.  Their shapes are very complimentary and elegant.  Straight, unadorned Desert Primitive.

SIZE:  3 1/2" x 5/8", or 88 mm x 16 mm long.  

CARE:  Wash in cool water to clean.  The silver can be brightened with a dry kitchen scrubbing pad if desired, or allow the patina to deepen.
