Like Daphne, the mythical dryad turned into a laurel tree to escape Apollo’s love, I transform Sterling Silver into twig form, complete with Freshwater Pearl leaves! This brooch makes a simple yet striking statement on a sweater or jacket lapel. The ultimate in personal style, I make this by soldering heavy-gauge Sterling to form the shape, then add pegs to hold each Pearl. Pin mechanism is Sterling Silver. Branching Twig measures about 3 1/4 inches in length and about 1 1/2 inches wide. Available in Oxidized Silver (shown), or Bright Sterling.
