Maple Leaf Mobile

£90.00

Inspired by the beautiful changing colours of the Japanese maple leaf (Momiji). The maple leaf is steeped in Japanese tradition, with momijigari being a favourite pastime as the leaves begin to turn in autumn. Each leaf in this hanging mobile is made with copper wire, wrapped with carnelian, jade, agate and Czech glass beads. The top of the mobile is a tree branch that gives a warm and tactile feel. Each hanging line has a swivel barrel at the top which means the leafy droplets can rotate around 360 degrees with gentle movement.

Description

Variation: Each piece is hand-crafted individually and will vary slightly in appearance. When ordering you will receive a replica of the original design using the same colour palette. Slight differences in the design and beading will occur due to the hand-made nature of copper metalwork. The photographs in the gallery show a number of versions of the design on multiple backgrounds to give the most true to life image. The wood used to hang the droplets from will vary in colour, thickness and shape as it is natural fallen timber. The branch may be darker or lighter where some or all of the bark has been removed and the shape will be unique to the branch.

Wood: Fallen wood has been sanded and finished with a natural colour oil.

Semi-Precious Gemstones: Agate, carnelian, jade and Czech glass.

Metal: The droplets are made from copper wire with an oxidised patina finish polished to reveal the metallic highlights, and sealed with a gloss varnish.

Hang: Flex wire with a loop for hanging.

Approx Max Height: 51cm / 20 inches (from the top of the hanging loop to the bottom droplet).

Approx Top Bar Width: 40cm / 15.7 inches.

Approx Measurement from the Top Bar to the Bottom Leaf: 40cm / 15.7 inches.
