Inspiration for my Cheese Plant Leaf Pendant
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. But 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. It had to be a tropical leaf – and what better leaf to pick than that of the Monstera Deliciosa or Cheese Plant. When I was a child, 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 this Cheese Plant Leaf Pendant is one of my favourites.
And although it was actually the second thing that I ever modelled in wax, it has the prestige of being mould Number One. Cast alongside Quasimodo, the Red-Eyed Tree Frog Pendant, it is a surprisingly adaptable, easy-to-wear and striking necklace.
What my customers say:
“My pendant arrived yesterday while at work, so it was a nice surprise to come home to. I am over the moon with it, the detail and high shine are just so stunning. A truly amazing creation and representation of a stunning piece of nature, I absolutely adore it! Thanks so much :-D”
