Fall Foliage


About this design:

So....I've been tired and crabby, and not designing much. Been wanting to create a fall piece, but just couldn't make it work. Finally got it together, but am having to learn a new way to edit photos...what do you think?

Components:

Sari silk, citrine chips, carnelian nuggets, Czech glass, wood petals, Unikite sticks, rubber beads, brass jump rings and hook clasp.
