Lovely sparkly smoky quartz beads with fifteen hand pierced silver leaves.
The leaves are joined in pairs except the middle one which features three leaves.
All the leaves have my characteristic pierced vein detailing.
I had great fun taking pictures of this on top of one of my favourite books-Hortus Eystettensis by Basilius_Besler an inspiring book with incredible botanical plates from the gardens of the Bishop of Eichstatt in Bavaria, Germany.
Might have to visit next time I’m passing…
