Leaves fall in autumn, petals fall in late spring. Hence, the inspiration for these pieces. I started with the 2 wavy-edged leaves and the flowers just begged for some drifting petals. These two just didn't seem like pendants, so they became pins.
As I was tinkering around with them, I just happened to put them together in such a way that they spoke: "bracelet!" So that's what I tried next. These 2 cuff bracelets have a small armature at the join, but are otherwise all polymer. I'm looking at different ways to add a clasp of some sort of it seems necessary, and to see how they wear.

In looking at photos of real zinnias, I was intrigued at the various different little petals that circle the center. I chose the little swirled pre-petals to use in these samples. They show up especially well on the red and white zinnia.

Finally, here is another of my "special" triangular shaped flowers I developed one day while playing with petal shapes. The blends and fades from yellow to violet really makes this piece come alive.
