Palm Tree Pendant in Silver

$170.00

Beautiful sterling silver palm tree pendant by Nicole Barr. The leaves of the palm tree are enameled green using the Champlevé technique.  Champlevé is the French word for “raised field”, in champlevé the artist removes the silver by cutting, hammering or stamping in order to create a depression which will then receive the melted glass. As the enamel is laid in the recessed areas of the silver, it is built up in layers until it reaches the same height as the remaining silver.  The sterling silver chain is adjustable to 18″ long. All the silver has been rhodium plated to be hypo-allergenic and tarnish free.
