leaf collection

Peperomia, or radiator plant, grows in the wild on rotting wood throughout the tropics, although these lovely are collected from the plants that adorn my bookcases and coffee table here in Detroit.  Their thick stems and fleshy leaves make them ideal for casting, allowing each side of these cast leaves to have texture and dimension.  Cast from the actual plant in solid recycled metal preserving the unique nature of each plant to make truly true-to-nature jewelry.
