Falling Leaf  Necklace

Maple Leaf, Sterling Silver, Golden Patina, 1 7/8" x 5/8", 18" Chain

When fall comes to Alaska it is as if we were enjoying summer one day and the next, the lawn is littered with yellowed Birch or Aspen leaves. It is still one of my favorite times of the year and all to fleeting. I wanted to capture a bit of that fall is these redesigned Falling-Leaf pieces.  There is just a hint of what's to come with the gentle golden patina.

When I was a kid growing up in the Kenmore, NY  we had huge maple trees growing on our street. They would be green and shady until September and then the long process of turning bright red and littering our lawn would begin.  My Dad would have raked  all the leaves into neat piles, turn his back just for a moment only to find that we had leapt with wild abondon into the center of each carefully raked pile. I remember deeply breathing in their crisp aroma and can recall the smell immediately when fall arrives.
