As you all know by now, I love Fall. I've made things to decorate the house for years. I've also made jewelry over the years using the motifs and colors I love so much. Two of my favorites are these necklaces.
I'm really a seed bead person. But, I'm beginning to try my hand at wirework. I like a lot of wire jewelry that's out there, and I've taken a few classes, which I've really enjoyed. Both of these necklaces were a lot of fun to make. The one on the left used some pieces from the My Elements line and a few recycled pieces from old jewelry. I decided to try some wire working to make a clasp to match the black chain. And, that was really fun! I used 22 gauge black wire to make a loop and hook. The second necklace made use of some of my collection of lucite leaves. I love lucite beads, flowers and leaves. I think Beadin' Path http://www.beadinpath.com/ has the best selection of lucite, and that's where these leaves came from. I used copper chain, along with Swarovski column beads to add sparkle. When I finished the necklace, I decided to use the remaining chain and crystal columns to make a pair of earrings.
I'll leave you with some close ups. Enjoy your day and make art!
