I've always been enthralled by Monstera leaves. The large, lush leaves with their graceful lines seem so tropical and tranquil. I tried to capture that feeling in this copper pendant.
This piece is completely hand sawn by me. The surface of the leaf has an organic texture. After texturing, sawing, sanding and polishing I give the piece a bit more leaf like character by hammering a slight wave in the piece. A rich patina highlights all of the features. Because this piece is hand sawn and hammered, slight variations will occur from piece to piece.
This pendant hangs from a copper chain that is adjustable from 30" - 34". Pendant size is 2" tall x 1 3/4" wide

To maintain the beauty of your handmade jewelry I recommend not wearing it while exercising or showering. Excess sweat and chemicals can quickly tarnish your piece. Natural oxidation will occur over time on all Sterling Silver, Brass and Copper jewelry. Wearing them often is the best way to keep them looking good. Friction from everyday wear actually helps polish the metal. If tarnish occurs, your piece can be cleaned with a jewelry polishing cloth.
