I actually started designing this necklace last July 2010 before one of my shows and absolutely love it!!!!! I enjoy nature so much and wanted to create something that brings me to that peaceful place. The leaf design was a challenge but so gratifying when I finished it. Just like nature the overall design is asymmetrical. I hammered copper that resemble twigs and connected them with balled up sterling silver. It has this awesome kinetic energy when wearing it!!

OK. The "leaf" design took off pretty well (sold two) I decided to "branch" out to another design - the peace sign. This is a prototype which I had displayed on the counter at my studio and before I could make another, I sold two of them:)
