This morning was the most beautiful fall morning. I’m sure lots of jewelry will be inspired from the photos I took on my walk with my husband and my dog. I have been really drawn to leaves lately, especially now as they are changing color, shriveling up into dramatic shapes and falling off the trees.
I like the color and skeletal nature of these leaves. They are like a thin layer of skin and you can see its veins. I think about how to recreate the texture and delicate forms in wax.
These leaves make a nice composition sparsely attached and revealing the branch structures. I want the composition of my jewelry to be organic and have the feeling it grew over time in a natural way.
These leaves just seem feminine, sensual, and energized. I like how expressive they are.
This gorgeous land is located at the base of Mt. Sopris up the Crystal river outside Carbondale, Colorado.
More leaves… the bits of moisture on the leaves are right at that point between frost and water. I like to recreate a feeling and sometimes I don’t use the literal shapes but the feeling of the whole picture could inspire a form or piece.
