I made the silver leaf and branch with silver and then filled them with resin and mother of pearl. I wasn’t sure how this would work – I thought the mother of pearl might be too subtle up against the neckline. However, I really like the effect – it really shimmers when it catches the light. I was so pleased with it that I decided to make a matching clasp. To finish it off, I found a mixed quartz strand and the colours worked perfectly.
