In this post I would like to showcase all my designs from this collection which have been derived from Leaves. The first two are from Dhathu I which comprises of handmade metal components, sketched, hand cut and formed by me and in the latter two (from Dhathu:II) I have used store bought components
|Lotus leaves necklace|
Peepal leaves Necklace: A half and half necklace of gold color and off white dyed shell beads with the focus being the brass peepal pendant with patina inks. I tried blocthing technique here and I think that works well especially when the base has some sort of texture - in this case lines
Triple golden leaf necklace: I also wanted to create a simple piece that didnt involve any patina. So I choose three golden color metal leaves and sort of stitched them up together with wire. This is my favourite cold connections technique. The crystals used I think just add the right amount of bling.
Those were the four leaf based designs in the collection, what do you think of them?
I hope you find it interesting
