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.
