Autumn leaf jewellery

This week a jeweller told us on Twitter how inspiring they found Autumn because of the colours the leaves turn. So that has prompted a look at autumn leaf jewellery.  Copper metal clay and fold formed copper are obvious choices for creating leaves in autumnal shades but it is striking how many jewellers are using resin, leather, plastic, textiles and glass to represent leaves or their colours.

Here are a few of our favourites to inspire you.
