when i FALL in love

These are some of the leaf pendants I made. I just walked out to the back door and came back with a Sugar Maple leaf. And the rest is history.
These pendants will go well with Fall Color Outfits at the Boutique. Ok, this is not the imprint of the leaves. I draw each one out, cut a small mesh wire and use it for reinforcement between two clay sheets, cut it out and hand draw (scribble) all the veins. My first year at Ball State U., during Plant Identification Class, we have to walked around campus and studied trees. We learned to ID trees by their leaves. By the time the final came, all the leaves were gone. and I was doomed. They let me passed the test anyway.
