Fine Silver Tomato Leaf earrings.  These earrings were created by painting layers of fine silver metal paste onto an actual tomato leaf from my garden.  Approximately 5-6 layers are applied.  When the piece is completely dried it is fired with a torch.  The leaf catches fire and then burns out the metal clay leaving the fine silver with the impression of the front/backside of the actual leaf.  The leaves are then placed in a tumbler to help with the shine, then polishing is done.  Sterling silver ear wires.  These leaves are from my garden in Spokane, WA.
