Here we have a unique gift for a new baby, a gorgeous leaf ornament that i have fashioned using polymer clay and a leaf impression from a real fallen leaf. In the middle, i have hollowed out a circular shape adorned with two dangling birthstones. This leaf features the child's first and middle name and the year of birth at the bottom.
My daughter's name is olivia hope. As you can see, i put her first name across the top, the middle name down the right hand side, and the year of her birth at the bottom. When there are longer middle names, this design does not work as well; see the third picture. I can in this case rearrange to have the first and middle names at the top of the leaf.
These beauties measure about 3-5 inches by 3-5 inches. There will be some variance because no two of mother nature's beauties are identical. I have a large collection of leaves i have collected while walking my dog to choose from. Again, there are many different leaf shapes and sizes.I use gorgeous genuine birthstones for these leaves please see the fourth photo for birthstones. The photo representative of the stones that i have, although the shade and size of the stones can vary.
Please note that october has 3 options. If you are ordering an october stone, please specify pink tourmaline, green tourmaline, or opal. The opals that i currently have are more white than yellowish like the ones in the photo. Here are the birthstones that correspond with the numbers in this fourth photo.
The color options are shown in the fifth photo. The contrast in color is best in the colors parchiment, dandelion, and sage. These ornaments are made to order.
I put a lot of time and love into these ornaments, and they are an absolute joy to make. These are very versatile and may be used for just about anything. The make a beautiful office decoration, wall hanging, can be strung on longer string for rear view mirror decoration.
Whatever you can dream up. Which birthstones you would like and in which order. What text you would like and the placement of the text.
