A manzanita leaf is cast in sterling silver and gilded with a 23K gold swirl. The leaf hangs from a minimalist loop and is finished with a rectangular cable chain.
The round leaves of Manzanita trees are spellbinding—gorgeous and tactile, sturdy but delicate. And yet, the leaves are usually the least admired aspect of these strange trees. The Manzanita’s bell-shaped flowers and berries are edible and sweet; its reddish, peeling bark is singularly striking; its twisted branches are so unique that florists commonly incorporate them into centerpieces. But for me, it is this little round, veiny leaf of the Manzanita that always steals my attention. This pendant has a lot of movement, and the flat, rounded shape of the leaf seems infinitely fun to touch.
