Sugar Maple Ornament - Gold
To transform the organic material from its natural state, each leaf is dried and dipped into a solution to remove the tissue, leaving only the vein structure.
Using an electroplating process, each piece of nature is coated in a layer of copper. This process creates a strong and durable foundation for each piece, as well as protecting the shape and veining patterns to create a superior and longer lasting product. The leaves, cones, and acorns are then finished in either 24K gold, fine silver, or iridescent copper. Our silver items are treated with an anti-tarnish coating.
