September Blues with Fold Formed Leaves

I have had a batch of fold-formed leaves sitting on the patina table, waiting patiently for me to take the time and listen to the color they wanted to be.
My melancholy won over and I dipped them in chestnut brown and then washed them with indigo, touched with violet and another layer of indigo.

I love the results. 
They so perfectly complimented the midnight blue coin pearls, it was as if the necklace made itself. 
What's that? YOU want a September Blue leaf?
Why, look at that! I have a one for you!

But you have to act quickly, Holiday orders are starting to come in and I may not have time this year to hammer out another batch!

    Gorgeous! You are good, really good, at what you do. No one else could even come close, just awesome, as always. While I'm deciding what I want, you bring out something else!! But don't stop! The colors just speak to the soul :)

  8. Oh Shannon. You are torturing me with all your wonderful items. HOW shall I do to NOT buy one of those leaves. They are absolutely wonderful, and I wanna use them in my jewellery. HAVE TO! I guess another new order from me will arrive sooner than later ...
