This piece was somewhat of an experiment. I wanted to make the aspen leaf appear as though it had been eaten by a caterpillar. The small natural stones are configured to depict the caterpillar. They are kinetic, designed to swivel in their setting.
The aspen leaf is hand fabricated from sterling silver sheet and wire. It hangs on a deer tan cord that was locally and sustainably sourced in the Methow Valley. On one end of the cord is handmade chain, adjustable 16-19".
This piece is one of a kind.
