Autumn Leaves

Earlier this year I made some leaves using gilded glass and stained glass. They are quite chunky because they are covered in mosaic both sides but I quite like them. I’m not alone either as two of them have been bought from Somerset Crafts gallery in the last week.

I decided to make some more leaves but this time thinner and more elegant. I bought some different colours of metal leaf, one of which was a gorgeous orange gold and perfect for autumnal golden leaves, and I gilded some glass.

I made a few duffs before I was happy with the leaves. I cut and bent sheet metal into leaf shapes and applied the gilded glass mosaic on the top. I gilded the metal underneath and on the edges to finish them.

If you wonder what you can do with them, here is an idea.
