The falling leaves have inspired me to make some leaf jewelry. There is an incomplete leaf necklace on my work table that I hope to finish soon. I did however, finish a few leaf pendants and earring sets. Yes, plural. Because I sell in several venues I need to make multiples. Anyway, this leaf was inspired by a design I found on Pinterest and I must apologize, because I don't remember the designers name. I put my own twist on the pendant, naturally. I used 18 gauge copper that I forged to add some shape and to work harden. Then I added some 4 mm crystals with some 24 gauge wire.
Since a lot of folks want sets I decided to go ahead and make matching earrings, but I used 20 gauge because the 18 gauge wouldn't fix in the crystals.
Now I need to get back to sorting and cleaning out closets. There is no sense in packing and taking some of my 'collectables' to my new home. I might as well begin purging and down sizing now.
Thank you for stopping by,
