Birds Eye View


About this design:

Decided to pick out some fall colors for this piece, seeing that the leaf focal reminded me of fall. Wire wrapped some birds eye jasper, golden mica and palm jasper to compliment the focal. Joined the wrapped beads with jump rings and finished it with a oak leaf clasp.

Components:

Birds eye jasper, Golden mica, Palm Jasper all from Lima Beads. Antique copper leaf focal, jump rings and clasp.

    Your wrapped loops are lovely, and I like the double jump ring theme you have going, especially in your bail.

    Really like your ‘Bird’s Eye View’, Wanda. That’s my type of necklace to make. The yellow really makes it stand out. I do love yellow, and red, and green, and, and, and – LOL.
