The first monthly challenge for etsymetal is to make a piece in response to this haiku:
metamorphosis of a fallen leaf saddened in springs warm embrace
At first I was going to work on a fold-formed leaf curling, but I overworked the metal and it split in two. I have learned that sometimes the "mistakes" become "happy accidents". I decided to go with this and make my leaf pendant into two earrings. I like the way it turned out better than what I planned! Here's my haiku:
Amid the chaos A tender leaf split in half, The tension released.
