Copper Leaves, River Rocks

I'm working on adding the copper metal leaves to the polymer clay river rock necklace.
Use a thin gauge copper, cut out the leaf shape, lay it on a sponge or something that will "give" when you push on it and use a stylus to impress the lines of the leaf. Impress a nice deep one down the middle so that you can fold and shape the leaf when you are finished.
I'm re-arranging my studio so am putting up some inspiration pieces. I had such a good time making the above necklace based on Jean Campbell's beaded peyote buttons. Kind of my own interpretation.
