I made these for my husband's birthday - well, they were only a couple of months late! I used sterling chain and jump rings for the links, but as you can imagine, they pulled apart - I didn't solder them because I've never soldered something on chain before and could imagine the mess I'd make. The links are now wire-wrapped, which isn't as pretty, but strong enough!
Blackberry leaves are my favourite leaves for making impressions onto PMC! I like the way this one's turned out.
This one's a bit of a cheat - I did use a real ginko leaf, but the veining was so faint I had to help it along with some tools, and I think it shows. Next time I'll pick a veinier leaf! This one's a present for a friend, so I hope she doesn't snoop here!
