London Plane Dark Leaf Brooch
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. One tree, not far from me, has very dark leaves in Autumn, with dark reds and purples, almost black at the edges when they fall. This brooch is inspired by that tree. It has black edges turning to red and gold in the centre with touches of green and blue here and there.
It's just on 2 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.
