I love this leaf and will be using it when I get better at etching.
The possibilities are endless! I love this shape!
I made initialed enameled ornaments with this blank. While I was working with it I saw the Grinch's face in the blank and had to make Grinch ornaments. They turned out really cute.
This is a very versatile shape which lends itself to many design possibilities. I've ordered this shape often, mainly using it in earring designs. Recently in the December 2017 issue of Beadwork magazine, Rita Pannulla's "Mixed Mandala" design was shown. It uses motifs like these (but slightly larger) in a mixed metal necklace. Not finding the larger size, I'm going with my own somewhat plagiarized version, adding a bracelet and earrings. If it turns out well, I will get some sheet and make larger sizes.
What a beautiful shape! So unusual. I have so many ideas, not only for stamping but also for enameling. Perfect gauge for it.
