Amulet "Leaves of Change"
The leaves for these pendants were hand collected in Northern Vermont in the fall of 2020. The changing colors show them in their process of reclaiming nutrients from the foliage and allowing them to fall from the branches before the winter sets in. These stores of energy allow them to survive the winter and flourish in the spring.
Metal alloys create either a silver or antique bronze finish as a setting for the naturally dried maple leaves. Glass Cabochons cover the leaves.
1" in diameter, 1.4" with eyelet, 7mm deep
I purchased two of these amulets in antique bronze as birthday gifts for my mother and best friend. Both were thrilled and tell me they wear them often! Wanting to purchase something unique and hand-crafted for them both, these immediately jumped out at me. The mixture of materials is just perfect, leaving you with a magical balance between the warm color and naturally intricate texture of leaves in the amulet mixed with the cool feel of the glass globe and metal backing/chain used to showcase it. Beautiful work! Thank you!
I bought this necklace and pendant in antique bronze. It arrived beautifully packaged and quickly. I chose this necklace because I’ve wanted a piece from Ashes for quite some time. I love wearing this necklace. It transitions well between casual clothing and also works well as a beautiful piece for days in my office. I love wearing it anytime but find I’m particularly drawn to wanting to wear it when I’m feeling out of sorts or anxious. It definitely seems to help keep me grounded on those tough days.
Do yourself a favor and pick one of these pieces up.
