This Michael Michaud long fern pendant necklace captures the beauty of this ancient plant. The pendant features a detailed fern leaf that is articulated at three points to allow movement. The fern leaf pendant is cast from bronze and than finished with a pretty light green patina. This gives the fern itself a pretty light green color, and the chain is an antiqued bronze.
The pendant measures approximately 3 inches long (including the bail, or loop for chain) by approximately 1.25 inches wide. The bronze chain features a lobster clasp and extender which allows the necklace to be worn anywhere from approximately 29 inches long to approximately 32 inches long. Please note that the dime is not included but is shown to help you gauge the size of the jewelry.
This handmade necklace would make a great gift for anyone who loves fern plants, nature jewelry, or handcrafted artisan jewelry. This fern necklace has also been popular for wedding jewelry, especially for nature themed weddings. This long necklace is great for over sweaters and other bulky clothes.
This long necklace was handmade in the USA by talented jewelry artist Michael Michaud as part of his Silver Seasons collection. This necklace comes with our original jewelry store tags and store gift box, great for giving or storage for years to come. This long fern leaf necklace also comes with an information card that states the following:
Ferns have been around since the dawn of time! They first appeared in fossil records that date back to the Devonian period 360 million years ago and have graced the planet ever since. They grow in many different habitats throughout the world and most popular during the Carboniferous Period (the Age of Ferns) being the dominant part of vegetation. Some ferns are used for food like fiddleheads, in art and for medicinal purposes. Not only do these unassuming environmentally-friendly plants stand the test of time, they remove pollutants from the air, remediate contaminated soils and serve as decorative highlights in any space they share.
A mix of green brass finish and green patina over bronze. Some styles accented in gold freshwater pearls and faceted semi precious garnet stones. Handmade in the USA

Today’s collection is a combination of Michael’s exceptional knowledge of jewelry making and his love of nature.
