Sycamore Branch Chain, Platanus occidentalis

435.00

These branches were gathered from an American Sycamore that was damaged after an early spring storm. The tree is still healthy, and grows on Belle Isle, along the James River in Richmond, Virginia.

The large damaged branch was full of little twigs that were starting to bud for spring. We gathered several twigs and cast them in sterling silver. The branches are antiqued, which serves to highlight the unique texture of these twigs.

16 little twigs were strung together so that their tips are all moving in the same direction, this chain creates a unique angled pattern around your neck.

  • Antiqued sterling silver

  • Live cast, one-of-a-kind piece

  • 22” length

Sycamore trees are recognizable for their stark white winter bark. As the tree grows during the summer, its bark expands and sloughs off, creating the original camouflage pattern. Also called the button ball tree, these trees bear large seed balls similar to sweetgums.
