♥ Shimmering Autumn Oak Leaf Ribbon Necklace ♥
This Pretty necklace features one of my handmade shimmering oak leaves in a beautiful green colour with tinges of copper, the leaf has been embellished with Swarovski crystals for the look of sparkling dew drops, a sparkling Preciosa Czech Crystal droplet hangs from a length of bronze chain.
I've handmade two acorns for the piece with beautiful Picture Jasper Beads & polymer clay dusted with iridescent mica powder & finished with a satin varnish.
The pendant hangs from two lengths of moss green satin & organza ribbon finished with a bronze ribbon clamp with extender chain.
Would make a lovely addition to a special outfit or as a present to a friend
The necklace is presented in a hand stamped box made of recycled card & filled with green recycled shredded paper with a print out of the Oak leafs meaning curled up in a scroll & tied with ribbon
~ Oak ~ Strength ~
The mighty Oak was held in great esteem by the ancient Celts and it is thought that the name Druid came from the Celtic word for oak ‘Duir’, to the ancient Celts the wearing of Oak leaves denoted someone of special status. The Oak brings Protection, Strength and Wisdom.*
Necklace Length 43cm smallest with 6cm extender chain
The Oak leaf is approx 9cm long
The Oak leaf is made by a process of layering up heat bondable film making it more robust than it looks but still with a natural flexibility, The piece is meant as more of a costume/special occasion piece rather than for everyday wear.
*Many thanks to Avia Venefica for allowing me use her interpretations of the symbolic meanings of trees, moths & dragonfly's, if you are interested in the symbolic & spiritual meanings of nature her blog is well worth a visit:-
