Cheese Plant Leaf Earrings (drop or stud)

£95.00

The monstera leaf was one of the very first pieces that I modelled in wax, and was made to accompany my large red-eyed tree frog.

These mini leaves,  modelled on commission for tree frog cufflinks, can either be worn as a stylish matching pair – or add a bit of a jungle feel by pairing them with a tree frog.

Inspiration for my Cheese Plant Leaf Earrings

When I modelled my first creature in wax, my original intention had been to start my jewellery collection with frogs and lilypads. Apart from ducks, they are my all time favourite creatures. However I was wooed by the most fabulous picture of a Red-Eyed Tree Frog. But what was I to do with the frogs and lilypads idea? I’m not sure whether a tree frog would ever come across a lilypad in it’s lifetime. So I had to look for a different idea. Being a child of the 70’s, a cheese plant (or monstera deliciosa) was a statutory feature in every household. We had an enormous one which grew the entire width of a rather large dining room. It came to a rather sad end (related to my pet cat Jerry) – but my love of these architectural leaves began there. And hence these Cheese Plant Leaf Earrings.

This miniature model of my larger cheese plant leaf was originally modelled for a pair of  Tree Frog cufflinks. It didn’t feel right to put a nondescript back on them. And the shape of this wonderful leaf fitted the bill perfectly.
