The visual values from this humble piece of nature was the call for play and improvising a new piece.
First I gave the perception of wearability. Then during the creative process I decoded its identity in order to manifest its message. This led to combining it with an other medium, mating the expression and aesthetics of a natural leaf with the juxtaposition of metal.
