A unique handmade London Plane leaf brooch. There are many London Plane trees all over the city. Their leaves can grow to a huge size and there's a big variation in the shapes and colours too. This leaf is based on the shape of a leaf from the Brunswick Plane in Brunswick Square Gardens. If you are in London you can see this beautiful tree in Brunswick Square Gardens by Russell Square tube station. It spreads its arms wide and shelters Londoners eating their lunch under it's huge boughs.
This leaf brooch is red with blue tips and swirls of gold running through it. There are tiny touches of iridescent pink too.
It's just on 3 inches from stem to tip.
It has a pin on the back and comes in a gift box.
Each piece is handmade and unique.
I cut out each shape and add colour, metallic pigments and resin. The colour moves as it cures, making interesting patterns.
I build up layers of colour giving the piece real depth.
Once cured the finish is rather like enamel.
