I think another user described my same reaction- I was just clicking "delete all" when I stopped myself to check out this piece. I have an addiction to leaves and trees (my entire bedroom is done in tree themes) and even after all this time and seeing countless tree/leaf/autumn motifs, I'm still excited when something unique pops up. This piece is truly eye catching- I like that the leaf isn't a solid color. The layering of the clay under the metal makes a really neat effect, and the hiding of the pearls in the leaf is a great idea --sort of gives a dew-drop/first frost kind of idea. The same goes for the lighter spots on the red-I can't be certain it's not my monitor, but I checked out the other images of this piece and it just made me like it even more. Lovely work, and I wish you the best of luck selling this. It's a fantastic piece!
