Hand painted silk and leather leaf brooch - Japanese Maple



Hand-painted silk and leather leaf brooch, with jewellery clip. The leaf measures approximately 9cm x 9cm, 3.5" x 3.5", each leaf is individually hand-painted so they vary slightly in colour and texture.

How this was made

After observation of real-life autumn field Japanese Maple leaves, collected on my everyday walks, I hand-painted silk satin to create the upper layer of the leaf. Then after backing each leaf soft glove leather and attaching a jewellery clip, each leaf has been individually hand-tooled using traditional millinery flower making tools. UK despatch via Royal Mail First Class Post is included, the brooch is securely packed in tissue paper in a "large letter" posting box. The box can also be gift wrapped and a personalised card added - please include the address of the recipient and the card details in the comments box - if you would like this item sent direct. For non-UK despatches please enquire. In the images attached you will also see the other leaves available in this collection.
