When I had my son eight years ago, we bought a maple tree to celebrate his safe arrival and I’m proud to say that they both seem to be surviving my tender ministrations so far! It has some very frilly leaves which I wanted to transfer to silver, and clay was the obvious choice (until I get a rolling mill, mwahaha!). A simple disc which I domed and set in a circle displays the texture beautifully. A little natural oxidation as it is worn means this pretty, natural piece will only mature and improve with a little age… It moves freely on the bail, just like leaves in the wind.
Think I’ll make some more before autumn!
This one is being donated as a raffle prize for a Welsh Blogger’s event being held in Cardiff next month. Really looking forward to that, watch this space for my report on it.
