Twig Bar Necklace // Rose Gold, Gold, or Silver
Twig Bar Necklace
This design features a real twig from a wild plum tree. Covering this twig in metal gives it a unique flair, so much more fun than a typical metal bar necklace. I hope that wearing a little piece of nature will remind you of how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful world.
The little plum tree twigs are sorted through, with hand picking the ones with the best shape to use. Little circles are attached to each end, and then each twig has to be dipped several times in a coating to harden and strengthen the twig, hanging to dry for a full 24 hours between each coat. The twig is then carefully hand painted with conductive paint, and then goes through a 20+ hour process of having metal deposited particle by particle over the twig. I add more metal than usual, to help strengthen the little twig with a really thick layer of metal. A 17 inch chain is measured and cut, and the twig is attached to the chain using locking jump rings (which are time intensive to put on, but so worth it to strengthen the necklace!)
Long story short... so much time and love from multiple people has been put into every single one of these necklaces.
The chain is solid sterling silver, gold filled, or rose gold filled. On top of the twig is formed in a thick core of pure copper, then heavily plated in gold, rose gold, or silver. All Little Sycamore jewelry is lead & nickel free.
