Woodland leaves

These earrings and the necklace where made separately, but work together beautifully. The earrings are made from actual leaves, which have been electroplated, and combined with copper findings and beads in accent colours. The necklace is in brass tones, and features a Trinity calla lily pendant and woodland leaf charm. The czech glass beads are in toning colours, with an orange highlight. I am finding that I enjoy putting things together by pulling out a selection of bits and pieces that appeal, and playing until it all comes together. I often go to bed with an idea in mind, and puzzle it out before I go to sleep. The next day, it comes together when I sit down at my table.
