Tiglio Choker

We have a lime tree or linden tree in our garden and I'm always fascinated by the mixture of foliage it produces. Apart from its gorgeous heart-shaped leaves, it also produces pea-like fruits attached to long bracts, that look like leaves. In this choker, I have attempted to represent in sterling silver all the various interesting elements that go to make up our little tree, and strung them all together on a black, silk cord. Tiglio is Italian for lime.
