This is so callef metal clay technique combined with traditional soldering. The whole piece is silver with a bit of gilding :).

Nice, this is very tasteful. I like the small bit of gold as well. The details are quite stunning, and easy to make out even with a smaller piece.

Z chęcią widziałbym więcej zieleni w tym wisiorku. Ciężko mi powiedzieć w jakiej postaci, bo nie znam się na biżuterii, ale zielone liście ze zdjęcia (oraz oczywiście ten subtelny kamyczek) pasują do całości idealnie. Śmiem rzec, że można by toto nosić z razem z tymi liśćmi :D

:) Właśnie się zastanawiam nad zrobieniem wersji dla siebie, z większym zielonym kamieniem - szmaragdem :).

Myślałem raczej o maźnięciu zielenią liści drzewa. Jakąś emalią czy czymś tam ;)

Beautiful! I just learned this past weekend that Mayan culture believed in a Tree of Life, and in their stone carvings it's represented by a cross that looks very like a lower case 'T'.

Those like myself who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints believe in the Tree of Life as a representation of God's love for his children.

I love the twisting roots and how they connect to form the trunk and then spread out as branches - very symbolic.
