Falling leaves

The area around La Petite Maison is covered in woodland. Some of the trees are pines, planted in plantations, but most are mixed native species, including a lot of beech and oak. In Autumn and early Winter that means glorious colour and falling leaves.

Our neighbours tell us that the Autumn colour wasn’t at its best last year, because of a hard frost early in the season, but it looked spectacular to me. The different colours and shapes were the inspiration for this pendant, which features textured and polished leaves in silver and brass, hanging from a long cotton cord.
