More more more


"Oh no not more of those B***** leaves!" I hear you cry.
Well a girls got to keep a record and present it to the world. 
You've aready seen plenty of the above but can you spot the difference in the ones below?
I had a plan where I'd stick to a few basic designs but I just can't help deviating. I suddenly made the veins and they reminded me of beech leaves, on the ground, in the Autumn and winter when you go for a walk at dusk and the stars come out...I just had to add a few stars. So a new 'standard' was born. What shall I call them?
Starry beech?
Since I showed the fronds I have sold a few and so just made an extra couple to keep the numbers up. Its my favourite.
I haven't listed these or the fronds on etsy but they are very definitely available as brooches or pendants...just ask.
UPDATE:I decided to list them after all! HERE
Don't forget 20% discount for blog readers with coupon code 'squashes'
Talking of shops, I must direct you all to the recently opened etsy shop of my old school friend Elli Woodsford, Embex studio.  Imagine my surprise when I found her a few years ago on Friends Reunited, with a passion for textiles!
I just had to get in touch immediately.

These are luscious enough to eat Jackie, you can make as many of them as you like and we will all love looking at them. Amazing how you can find old friends on blogger. Cheeers.

I don't care if you post pics of your brooches and pendants every day! I never tire of their glowing colours and lusciousness. The addition of the little stars is lovely. How nice to find your friend again.

Hi Jackie, so glad I found your blog and have subscribed and added it to my blog for all my readers to find you.
I would love one of your leaf broches, burn orange velvet with blueish felt edge would be lovely.
It would also be great to meet you, possibly at Fibre & Clay one day. I am there on Saturday teaching. Best wishes, Heike

These are wonderful....all of them (specially the off piste one)

Just catching up with your posts love the film on the Greek one, such quiet. Were they scraping up what I think they were? That lovely goodness for the garden!

I love seeing the leaves - how about a maple leaf? Being in Canada it's what we have a lot of and right now they're looking spectacular (if the wind and rain today don't finish them off).

Beacee said...

Are the leaves in the shop or have they sold out?

Exquisite!
