Autumn leaf in wirework and bead crochet

Another week of working on jewellery inspired by the natural world. For a while now I've had an idea in my head for a piece incorporating a leaf with a filigree edge. I selected a really pretty palette of Autumn colours from my stock of beads, then set to work with wire and crochet hook. I made three strands and then plaited them together. The leaf pendant was great fun to make and I finished the bail with fine wire wrapping so that it looks like a little stalk.

Nature in the garden continues to amaze and delight. A couple of days ago we saw the most beautiful and very tiny moth on the flowering currant bush. We looked it up and found out that it is a 'Mint Moth'.
