This pendant is a part of the Vibrant Harvest Collection, a collection that is inspired by autumn.
The Fall Foliage Pendant is a simple and rustic homage to autumn. This teardrop-shaped pendant features a red dendritic jasper cabochon with its lovely stone veins in autumn tones. It is adorned with a real leaf cast in sterling silver, so the natural forms and textures are preserved. As you can see in the pictures, the bottom of the bezel that hold the stone is a bit uneven; this stone is securely held in place, but the texture does make the pendant appear more rustic. The silver has been oxidized, a process which creates the blackened or antiqued appearance on silver. The raised points have been polished to shine, while the low points retain the oxidized color to show off the depth and details. The pendant measures 1.5" tall and 0.75" wide at its widest point. All metal used in this piece is sterling silver.

A few notes on caring for sterling silver jewelry: like fine silver, sterling silver does tarnish over time. Exposure to chemicals can affect the appearance on silver (like hair dye, pool chlorine, some soaps, etc.). It is not recommended to wear sterling silver jewelry while bathing or swimming for this reason. If it tarnishes, sterling silver jewelry can be cleaned with cleaning cloths or solutions that are labeled as being safe for silver. Cleaning sterling silver can also remove oxidized patina applied to the piece, so use caution when cleaning if there is desired oxidized patina.
