A real Japanese Maple leaf was collected and the flesh removed. The remaining structure is a beautiful skeleton. The Japanese Maple leaf is finished off by being dipped in 99% silver (purer than 925) and matched with a silver plated chain, creating a beautiful Japanese Maple leaf bracelet.
Maple in Japanese culture.
With a rich history of symbolism, the Japanese maple tree has played an important part in Asian art, gardening and even poetry for hundreds of years. In Japan, the Japanese maple is known as "momji". The word has two English translations. The first is "baby's hands", and the second is "becomes crimson leaves".
