Handmade Full Moon Maple Real Leaf Necklace – all our maple leaves are one-of-a-kind, beautiful real leaves, dipped in precious metals. The Electroforming Process: First, each leaf is skeletonized with a brush or sand blaster, then painted with a metal based paint, allowed to dry, and then dipped in copper. Next a layer 24K Gold, Sterling Silver or Iridescent Copper is electroplated over the copper. This preserves the original leaf forever. Many of the full moon maple leaves come from BC Canada and are said to make dreams come true! They average about 2″ by 2″ and easily one of the most popular styles. Amazing and unique, handmade in Los Angeles one by one.
