Lampwork Beads
Ginkgo Leaf Series

I have been developing the ginkgo leaf in my dreams for awhile now - nearly two years, since 2005.  I had always wanted to interpret my appreciation for the beauty of the ginkgo leaf in glass but it was not yet the right time. I had to think and mull over how I would sculpt and technically execute the leaves because I wanted to "do it justice". I wanted the leaf to be just right and a close facsimile to the real thing.  March 19, 2007 was finally the right time to give the glass ginkgo life! And here it is.  

This series is an extension of the Serenity leaf series.  The ginkgo symbolizes peace, sensibility and hope for better and peaceful future to the Japanese.  The ginkgo leaf is amongst my favorite  motifs in Art Nouveau and is often utilized in many art mediums.  It's fan shape is so romantic.  The ginkgo is a plant species unlike any other as it has it's own plant classification.   It is a living fossil dating back over 270 million years.  To learn more about this leaf, visit the Ginkgo Leaf Museum website.

Overtime, this series will compliment the many colors available in the Serenity and Serenity Milkglass series so that the leaves can be designed and implemented together if you wish. The series will also have it's own unique limited colors, from time to time.  Each leaf is individually sculpted therefore shapes will vary in each strand, as no two leaves are the same in nature.    After studying hundreds (maybe even thousands) of ginkgos, I would have to say that these are sculpted very close to the real thing.   What do you think?  It's a real joy to see a ginkgo leaf form in the flame with careful sculpting under my guiding hands.   I LOVE making them.   These leaves are perfect for a necklace or earrings.  Use them as you would the Serenity leaves.   A 10% discount will be applied (before calculated shipping rates) when 10 or more strands of Serenity, Serenity Milkglass, Serenity Cut and Ginkgo leaves are ordered together in one shipment.    You can mix and match between these leaf series to meet the quantity discount.

All beads are individually packed, wrapped in tissue paper and shipped bubble-wrapped via US Priority with delivery confirmation.  For additional shipping and ordering details, visit the Ordering page.  When emailing your order, please include the item number(s) and a short description.  An invoice summary will be emailed to you within 24 hours, unless I am out of town.

Out of Stock leaves will be back in stock soon. 
(O/S items can be made to order if I am not traveling)

New colors are being developed and created.
