These earrings were made by encasing real Ironwood leaves in recycled copper. Its a process we do in the studio called electroforming.
Ironwood is a California native evergreen tree that is fairly quick growing, reaching to a maximum height of 50-60 feet and a width of 15 to 20 feet.
Electroforming is a process where we take copper from a sacrificial anode and deposit it onto our organic material using an electrical current. There really is a leaf in each of these earrings.
We ship them in a Kraft gift box for sweet gift giving and safe shipping.

Due to the natural form of leaves, each item is different. These earrings are completely handmade. Any imperfections are not to be seen as defects, but unique qualities of using natural leaves, recycled or reclaimed metals and buying handmade.
