Autumn Leaves and New Jewelry

As typical for this time of year, I’ve been a little fall leaf obsessed. A few weeks back I was walking around my neighborhood when a mother, pushing a stroller turned onto the sidewalk headed towards me. Immediately I heard her say “honey, we can’t keep picking up every leaf” and I chuckled to myself because I’m sure she hadn’t yet seen me or the giant stack of colorful autumn leaves I had been picking up myself.

Anyone else having problems sharing from Instagram?

Naturally, I had the idea to use these beautiful leaves as props for some leaf jewelry for my shop.

Every fall I am so thankful for our neighbor's burning bush #fromwhereistand

Usually I feel Fall whips by so quickly 💨🍁🍂, but this year it's hanging on. Ive been able to ride my bike to work in November! I'm still adding new leaf jewelry to the shop, necklaces and rings (link in my profile)

It’s been a while since I’ve made any of these pieces, but I had a custom a little bit ago, so I made a whole batch. While there are elements of real leaves in each piece, the color you see is my own watercolor work. See more variety at robayre.etsy.com
