Brass Leaf with Crystal Dew Drop


About this design:

There it was. This little brass scrap just waiting to do or be something. I picked it up, looked it over and decided it had the right proportions to make a leaf. Out came the trusty sheet metal snips, cut and smoothed the shape, textured it on both sides then torched it. It looks good on both sides but one side has a more greenish tone from the heating. It needed a little something extra to dress it up so I added an ice flake crystal dew drop that really sparkles in the sun.
The last picture shows the color on the flip side.

Components:

sheet brass, crystal bead, brass Boston link chain, magnetic clasp
