Emerging on limbs, rustling above, flittering past, piled into mounds and blanketing the streets, leaves are an iconic sight signaling the changing of the seasons and while they (even in their absence) are impressive all year round, it is perhaps the changing of their colors that is most exciting.
I'm still spending lazy afternoons listening to the leaves rustling in the summer breeze, but as the long and free days of summer begin to wane, my mind and my work have begun to focus on fall.
For these new pieces, I've mixed warm and cool tones with the occasional pop of color to create pendants and earrings that can easily transition from summer through spring.
Bright blue enamel hints at clear blue skies.
Copper leaves with hammered textures, brass leaves that have been roll printed or etched, and sterling silver leaves created from recycled wire blend together in a neutral color palette.
Ready for the changing of the seasons? I know I have some boots that I wouldn't mind slipping on.
Look for these and other leaf pieces in the Botanical Collection.
