Silver Maple Key Necklace
Hold nature close to your heart with this beautiful maple key necklace. This textured necklace has been cast in silver from a real maple key. It was crafted with care by local metalsmith Kyla Vitek.
To create these unique pieces, Kyla uses a process called "organic casting" in which organic, natural materials such as maple keys, seed pods or cedar branches, are used to create a cast that is filled with molten metal and rapidly cooled. Once the metal is cooled, it can be manipulated by bending, soldering, texturing, and polishing to create a beautiful, wearable piece of nature
