Lavender Leaves Impression w/ Amethyst
Handcrafted in Livingston, MT by Maria Gotta of Nest's Studio Art. Part of her Nature Inspired Series, this beautiful necklace is made by using the leaf from a Lavender flower to create its gorgeous texture. Lavender definitely is a perfect symbol of the great Rocky Mountains. This piece has a slight patina to bring out the texture and dimension of the leaf. Maria placed a small orange amethyst gem on the left-hand side for a perfect pop of color. The pendant hangs from silver jump rings on a sterling silver oval link chain.
- Handmade item using recycled materials
- Material: Brass, Copper, Silver
- The pendant is roughly 1" x 2" oval shaped
- Necklace length is 18 Inches
Maria's original silver jewelry is created using PMC (precious metal clay). PMC is made with recycled microscopic particles of fine silver and an organic binder. After she molds and textures the silver clay, the piece is then dried and fired in a kiln. While in the kiln the organic binder, that is the clay, burns off and we are left with 99.9% silver. Each piece is then buffed to a shiny silver, with a slight patina to bring out details in the impression. Once the piece is finished, she adorns each pendant with a leather cord or a sterling silver bead chain, while the earrings receive handcrafted ear wires. Since each piece is handmade, imperfections will exist. This contributes to each piece's own uniqueness.

What are your products made of?
We use aluminum, brass, copper, and sterling silver for our jewelry. Our chains are sterling silver. Yellow and rose gold jewelry chains are sterling silver electroplated with rose or yellow gold. Our chains are made in Italy and electroplated in California. We use aluminum, brass, copper, sterling silver, and nickel silver for our pet ID tags. Our split rings are zinc-plated steel and are made in Wisconsin. Individual products’ materials are listed in each description.
Is personalization extra?
All of our products are priced to include personalization. If you need extra text applied (to the back, for example), an extra charge will be required for the extra work involved. In general, an extra line of text consists of up to 12 characters including spaces and costs $4. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to create a custom order.
Will the letters be perfectly straight?
We use a method called hand-stamping to personalize each piece. Every letter and number are struck individually using an antique hammer. This method creates unique and varying alignments which add to the character and handmade nature of the piece, so every product will be slightly different.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes. We ship internationally via USPS First Class Mail International. This method can take anywhere from 2-8 weeks in transit. Customs and fees are the buyer’s responsibility and we will not knowingly falsify any customs documents.
Will you gift wrap my order / include a note?
Your personalized jewelry will arrive neatly packaged in a small box. If you are ordering multiple pieces, please specify at checkout that you would like separate boxes. Otherwise, we combine multiple products into one box. Packing slips and receipts are not included. If you are ordering a gift and would like a note included, please specify during checkout what you would like the note to say.
Are these tags just for dogs?
No. We’ve created pet id tags and charms for cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, horses, ferrets, plus children and adult humans. Many designs require no modification; just be sure to order an appropriate size for the animal (or human) you are tagging.
Will the metal tarnish?
All of our products begin with an untreated sheet of metal. No waxes, sprays, or finishes are applied to the products, which means they will develop a patina over time. Humidity will accelerate the patina’s development. Jewelry polish pads are available for $0.50 each. We recommend storing your jewelry in an airtight plastic bag (one is included in your order) and removing your jewelry to bathe, swim, sleep, or exercise.
Can I order online and pick it up in the store?
Yes. Please select “in-store pickup” under the shipping methods and select your preferred pickup date.
Can I buy just the pendant?
Yes. On many products, you’ll find a drop-down menu for our “Necklace” or “Pendant” options. Necklaces include a chain as described in the product description. Pendants do not include a chain.
