Oak leaf and acorn mixed metal necklace

When autumn arrives, my mind turns to leaves... every year it's the same. This year I have made this lanyard-style necklace in sterling silver and bronze with a ring and t-bar closure. The silver leaf has been rolled with a real oak leaf to give the vein pattern that has then been given an oxiding treatment and brushed for an organic look. The bronze leaf has also been rolled, but the pattern is much more faint. Bronze is very hard and it is difficult to emboss in a roller. The acorn is sterling silver and an alloy of bronze and silver. This is quite a heavy necklace, weighing in at 22g
