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.

Branching Twig Pin

  • Clean your Bright Silver Branching Twig Brooch by rubbing with a silver polishing cloth.  Oxidized Brooch will not require surface cleaning, but you may remove dirt or debris by washing with a gentle liquid dish detergent in water.  This will also restore the luster to your Pearls.
