I’ve finally updated my Etsy site with jewellery made from the leaves collected on our road trip. If you followed my travels around North Ontario you might have seen this picture:
During the trip I made sure to be collecting leaves along the way – looking for anything that caught my eye including small ferns, and strips of birch bark. We didn’t hurt any trees though ;) everything I used was collected from the ground. We slowly dried and preserved the leaves over the trip so when I got home I had all kinds of beautiful material to work with.
Every necklace is made with jeweller’s grade resin; it will never yellow and it won’t scratch easily. Little compositions of leaves and bark have been created in each 1″ bezel.
They come in a variety of finishes; copper, bronze, hematite and silver. Each one comes on a matching 18″ball chain.
If you like what you see then head on over to my Etsy site to see more :) These one of a kind pieces are crafted with love and are a great way to celebrate this beautiful time of year.

I wanted to share an update to my Etsy shop – resin rings have been added to my Autumn collection!
These rings contain real autumn leaves, vintage sequins and occasional embellishments like sprigs of Queen Anne’s lace.
They are both in antique copper for now, though I’ll be making some in copper, silver and gold finishes as well.
They are adjustable in the back, I love them so much I made one for me :)

I have begun getting my Etsy site back on track, the site will grow to contain samples of (hopefully) everything I do; jewellery, ceramics, photography and knitted goods. I’ve started out featuring just a few things – the leaf jewellery so popular at the show and two of my mom’s beautiful designs. Check back to see what’s new – I am hoping to add more every day. If there is something you’ve been looking for, or saw on the blog, that is not on my Etsy page feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know – I love requests!
