Enameled Oak Leaf Pendant Progress

Here is an update of the Oak Leaf that I am working on.  I finally finished prepping the leaf itself and  after rounding out the tips a bit, I finally was able to do the exciting part of this project:  enameling!
I used my jewelry torch to enamel glass powder over the top; so basically you end up with a lovely glass layer fused to the metal.  This is something I just love to do!  

The green I used is Jungle green;  it's a vibrant green which I find looks great for leaves! 
 I am very  pleased with how it turned out.  

I am now working on the acorn part of the pendant which will dangle freely on 
the necklace along the leaf.
