A completely original hand painted miniature tree based on Rafi’s most popular series “Seasons Of Change”. Each tree is carefully painted on a small piece of wood by Rafi, and gingerly nested in a wire bezel setting by Klee. A whimsical wearable piece of art. Your choice of season and metal, along with each unique painted tree shape make it truly and uniquely yours.
This is the first and original art collaboration from Rafi and Klee, making a re-debut for the launch of our new Ecommerce site.
These necklaces are made to order, the ones in the photos are sold and yours will be created just for you.
-Each tree pendant is hand painted by Rafi on a small piece of wood, signed, and sealed to protect it’s integrity.
-Each painted tree has it’s own unique shape, number of branches, and personality.
-Tree is carefully mounted in a hammered and woven wire setting by Klee. Wire setting may vary slightly while remaining true to the design, as these are bespoke.
-Pendant measures 38mm (1 1/2″) tall (not including top pendant loop which adds about 1/4″), and 19mm (3/4″) width. Please allow for slight variances in size (1mm or less) as these are hand made.

ABOUT STERLING SILVER
All of the silver used in our designs is solid .925 sterling silver (with exception of fine silver components which are 95-99% pure silver and will always be noted as such).
ABOUT GOLD FILLED
Gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of gold, which must constitute at least 5% (1/20) of the item’s total weight, mechanically bonded to sterling silver or a base metal (such as jeweler’s brass). Gold-filled items are 5 to 10 times thicker than regular gold plating, and 15 to 25 times thicker than gold electroplate, making it much more valuable and longer lasting because gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film as on plated jewelry which is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Most gold-filled is 12kt or 14kt gold-filled (I use 14kt for my pieces). Gold-filled does not de-laminate or peel like plated or “dipped” products. It is tarnish resistant and does not tarnish as readily as silver. Many find that they never have to clean gold-filled items at all. However, from time to time your jewelry may become dirty from everyday wear. To clean gold-filled it is best to use mild soap and water.
The copper in this design is pure, raw, solid copper. It is not treated, lacquered or coated in any way, so it will darken and develop a nice patina over time.
For some wearers, copper will leave a temporary green mark on your skin. It washes off with soap and water, and is harmless. If you have any questions about caring for copper or wearing copper, please feel free to message us before purchase.
