On a walk through the park, you probably wouldn't even notice five leaves on a branch, such as are depicted in these earrings.
But when it's transformed into jewelry it's easy to appreciate the natural qualities of something so simple - the slight curving of the branches and the way the leaves continue the same curve, the serrated edges of the leaves, the contrast between the long slender branches and the flat tear-shaped leaves, the interaction of solid and void, the gradual tapering of the branches as they grow into very thin veins in the leaves, and so on.
Even the overall shape – a result of the way it naturally grows - is both unique and appealing. And as jewelry it has the added dimension given to it by the polished silver's natural glisten.
