Ginko Leaf

My beautiful helper models my Ginko Set.
I my back yard there is ginko tree. It is fully green now and glistens in the all to persistent rain. In the autumn the leaves will turn a glorious yellow and in one day they will rain down with a persistence unequaled buy other trees. It is no wonder that I am inspired to use the ginko leaf motif in some of my jewelry. 

The Ginko leaf pattern in this set starts with my Dragon Parts stamp. When I design my stamps I think about what the parts will look like in isolation. By choosing carefully the person using the stamp can get dozens of designs from one large stamp. I like incorporating the bits into one picture so that the user of  the stamp is given the creative choice of where a design begins and ends.
