I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold... by Melonarium I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold... by Melonarium
...and leaves of gold there grew.

Small openwork pendant showing two pleached mallorn trees. Made by hand of fine silver, sterling silver and little golden labradorite.
I was trying to form a Celtic knot out of the trees' branches, but it doesn't look as Celtic as I wanted ;) I guess I'll try to make it once again one day :)

Partially inspired by Laurelindorenan pendant by Drakonaria, but I believe this piece of jewellery lived in my head since I discovered J.R.R. Tolkien's prose and fall in love with the Golden Wood realm :giggle:

ahh that's a shame, that piece is lovely and i know my girlfriend would love it. Any chance I will see this piece again when you start your business? ;) 
It's my pleasure, i thought it was beautiful!

Sure- it will be for sale then :) The stone is not that pretty all the time though- it flashes warm, golden colours only at same angles. Most of the time, unfortunately, it looks darker and less interesting- you can see more pictures here. I just wanted to be fair and emphasize it- I would not like to see you and your girlfriend disappointed one day :D Also, if this piece were already sold or if you would like it with any personal twist, I will be more than happy to make a similar pendant especially for you. Thank you again- your kind words means a lot! :)

I like the branches.  Turned out very nice, and it doesn't have to look entirely celtic to be beautiful, which it is.

:music: Of wind I sang, a wind there came and in the branches blew....:music:
Have you heard any songs from the Border Collies 'Laird of the Rings' album? I highly recommend it. This is one of the songs they did.

This is a gorgeous piece of jewelry. The setting in which you photographed it also lends even more beauty.
