ENCASING NATURE

vintage leaf brooch resin maple ellie tennantI’m a little bit in love with this vintage brooch I found the other day, which has a real, tiny, maple leaf locked forever inside a resin shell. It looks handmade and I wonder…who made it? And for whom? I love the way that fragile leaves, seedheads and flowers can be frozen in time in resin, a most un-romantic material – but one that captures and preserves timeless beauty. My Hafod Grange resin dandelion clock paperweight is one of my favourite mantelpiece treasures – and evidence that even the seemingly impossible is sometimes possible.
