About this design:

Saw all of the leaves hanging and falling so I made a brooch. So much fun.

    Yep, you have all of the beautiful fall colors! What size is this? Did you do a pin back?

    I do like your color choices for this brooch. Autumn colors are my favorite. This may be a pin but it would look great framed as a picture.

    We don’t get much autumn color except for the liquid amber trees. Oh well that’s the price you pay to live in almost perpetual sunshine except for May gray and June gloom.

    Thank you all.

    LRC – I haven’t seen a palm tree in over 15 years. I had a wonderful mission fig tree in my yard – delicious. There are many things I miss. Especially the Pacific.
    But here I am with the falling leaves. (I enjoy them also.)

    bluedog – It’s a little over 2 inches with a regular pin back (the kind that closes over the pin)

    Beautiful little piece to dress up a fall sweater or coat! I could also see it pinned to a hat or knit cap!

    Thanks sweetjane and Fresh Baked. I like the idea of pinning it to a hat.

    I love autumn with all the changing leaves and colors. Nice interpretation transferred literally into jewelry!
