Eucalyptus Leaf Necklace

PRODUCT STORY
Camille says: I collected the leaf in a nearby park, the bark from the Sierras, and the plastic was cut from a recycled plastic milk jug. The leaf, bark and plastic were all dipped in resin, sanded and drilled by hand. Then I attach them using brass jump rings and chain.

This necklace made from found objects was created for my line called Recharte Jewelry. Recharte refers to re-charting our course as a society. I believe that because we create our social world by collectively defining it, the way to improve is to redefine. I hope when people wear Recharte Jewelry they will be reminded of their ability to redefine our world, and plot our course toward something better.
MATERIALS
Resin, eucalyptus leaf, bark from a Jeffery pine and clear milk dot bead created from recycled milk cartons all strung together on antiqued brass chain

Camille combines natural and reclaimed man-made materials to create a stunning "found object" piece. Do you find the Eucalyptus Leaf Necklace charming?

I salute the artist's effort to generate a business, but this particular piece says '60s hippie to me, especially when framed by the artist as an emblem of "redefining" our social world. To my eye, the components of this particular piece are more attractive left in the parks and on the trees.

With all of the human rights being exploited with the mining of gold, silver and diamonds, I like the idea of finding beauty in nature. If that makes me a hippie, then I'm ok with that. Besides, has Margaret seen the fashions inspired by the sixties at Anthropolgie and Freepeople?

Not that it isn't very creative, I think that the other pieces have more substance and relevance. Many can take from nature and create pieces such as these. I myself could easily. But the Tree Grows necklace and the zipper ring takes a bit more talent and work. The piece is nice. Just not as nice as there's.

The elements of this piece are lovely, but the juxtaposition of the shapes doesn't appeal to me. Too long and pointy. Would prefer the leaf by itself.

Very creative. I like the use of multi-media. All found objects, some recycled and some repurposed. Would like to see more of her work.

This piece is beautiful and very well executed. I appreciate the simplicity and use of natural and found objects, especially with so much current focus on environmental consciousness, I believe the line will be successful.

The chain seem to take away from the focal of the leaf and bark. A Eucalyptus leaf is normally 4-6 " long within it's self, plus the bark, another few inches. Seems like it would get lost on the body with a long chain. Maybe shorten to a choker length.Displaying the necklace on a person would help, otherwise the piece shown is dull and boring in my opinion.

It is different, however, I would not wear it as it does not appeal to me personally.
