Summer Leaf is a new set of original mesh jewelry, introduced at the Some Like It Hot event at the shops at Sage. There is only one color so far because I could not come up with another gradient that satisfied me. I’m still working on it and hoping to provide an update, with HUD, later.
The necklace opens at the front on hinges at each side. The bracelet has one hinge opposite the leaves. The front of the earring has a post that inserts into the back.
The base fractal of the enamel is a deep zoom into the Mandelbrot set with a triangle inequality average overlay. (There’s some fractal texturing layered over the top, too.) I’ve been playing around with this one since 2011. For this project, the challenge is getting just the right amount of color change in the hue layer and not too much shadow in the overlay layer. Here’s a monochrome version.
