The Mountain Laurel represents Perseverence & Persistence. When the leaves all take flight from the tress in winter and the forest turns grey, the Mountain Laurel perseveres effortlessly, with brilliant green leaves all winter long & branches so strong that wood workers seek them out for furniture and ornaments. This particular leaf was modeled after a young midsummer leaf that I plucked from a shrub right beside my studio. These leaves are brass and have been treated to delay tarnishing. If they do eventually tarnish, polishing with a little toothpaste over the sink will bring them right back to their original gold color. "Nevertheless, she persevered."
