Handcrafted Jewelry — Designed to be Different


Silver Leaf

Silver LeafThe box in the corner of the shelf holds more than two dozen bags of glass leaves. Brown ones. Green ones. White and bronze. Red and grey. Top drilled. Side drilled. Matte, glossy and two-tone.

I accumulated this lot over several years but in all that time I’ve used hardly any. Whatever was I thinking?!?

The other day I pulled out one bag. Shiny, small and heavy, these leaves caught my eye right away. What could I make with them?

I found some wire and a couple of beads left over from a recent project and set out to see what might be.

I like this design so much I’ve made several other earrings using different leaves. I’d hate to run out if another neat idea comes by so I may just have to buy some more. 😉
