Sorry, couldn’t resist a song line as a title…
Its true we can no longer deny it Sum-Tum is fast turning into Autumn…and while we’re sorry to say goodbye to flip flops and sun tans we’re quite excited about our the Autumn looks…
Blowing in the Wind is our perfect Autumn accessory collection. Each piece of jewellery is made from a REAL leaf, in a painstaking process of checking, applying finishes and polishing… Available as striking necklaces, beautiful brooches (a fabulous Christmas gift) and dainty earrings. Our brooches actually double up as necklaces too, giving you two looks for your money.
We thought we’d tell you a little more about our leaves in case you’re not familiar with them or you thought we’d picked them up in the park ?
Sugar Canadian Maple
Coming to us from North Eastern North America, valued as much for their syrup and wood as their fabulous fall spectacular leaf colours, the sugar Canadian maple has leaves of between 8-15cm long & equally wide (our jumbo leaves) This is an easily recognisable leaf and its simply stunning when made into necklaces or earrings.
Also used for making tea, as well as for dyes and cosmetics birch trees are the most common native tree in Scotland, and often associated with folksongs and ballads.
Hailing from South Texas, this beautiful and unusual leaf ranges in colour from dusky blue to blue gray to grayish green. The lacey Oak is grown primarily to protect it and save this unique species
The cotton wood tree is beautiful and majestic. Its leaves are usually about 3.5” long and wide and have the distinction of looking like hundreds of little love hearts…
Grown in Colorado, this tree produces leaves that twist and bend to protect them from harsh winds. Their leave can be used to treat burns, irritations, aches and swollen joints
