    I had malachite inlay in better days...

    2" from top of stem to leaf tip.

    As only the silver mount remained, I went for a new interpretation :-)

    I bought a parcel of different cuts peridot melee and another of multicolor tiny sapphires.

    I filled the leaf with white polymer clay, buffed with silver effect wax, then stuck in my stones, bottom up for sparkling.

    Cooked the whole thing in oven 30 minutes at 110 degrees Celsius.

    Et voilà ! Today was a kyratisation day!!!
