Real Fern Necklace with Red Aventurine Gemstones
This is a real fern leaf that was foraged on one of my many hikes near my home in Juneau, Alaska.
I used the magic of copper electroforming to immortalize the fern in an armor of pure copper and added Red Aventurine gemstone accents to the necklace chain.
Comes on an 18” antiqued copper chain.
See last photo for size reference.
All copper will eventually oxidize and tarnish with time and wear, but the copper on this necklace has also been coated with a protective varnish to extend the life of the antiqued patina shine. There are many easy techniques to bring back the lustrous copper shine such as a simple rub of a jewelry cloth, soaking in vinegar, soaking in lemon or lime juice, and even using ketchup!
Red Aventurine balances masculine and feminine energies. These are stones of finance and prosperity, helping bring money and abundance into your life. While it is often labeled as “red”, this type of aventurine is really orange in color. This makes it both useful as a base and sacral chakra stone, alleviating issues in both areas. Use this stone to attract wealth, vitality, protection, and desire.
Copper is an excellent conductor of energy, from electricity to the mystical subtle energies emanating from higher planes. Copper is said to enhance and transmit thoughts, even over long distances. Copper also enhance the properties of the other crystals around it, so using copper in conjunction with other stones is highly beneficial to the wearer.
Electroforming is a very time intensive process that produces unique results with each piece having it’s own beautiful characteristics. Each piece takes 24-48 hours just to create the copper plating, and days of prep work before and after receiving that beautiful copper energy. Lots of love and attention goes into each of my copper electroformed pieces, and I hope you enjoy them!
