Colorful Leaves

About this design:

The center section of this necklace was originally part of another necklace that bombed. Many weeks after I made that necklace I took it apart then left the pieces on the back of the work table. When I picked it up again I decided to punch holes along the bottom of the center piece and see what would look good hanging from it. The leaves were left over from another necklace. I just added them to the center part of the first necklace and liked the way they looked. Originally most of the leaves had been parts of larger pieces of sheet metal that had been heat treated and cut up for different projects. Gotta love that torch!

    Thanks for the compliments ladies. :)

    Julie, obviously I love copper and brass leaves, too. I’ve made so many of them in the past year that I think I could make them in my sleep. Good thing I can use the metal snips cause if I had to use a saw I’d still be working on the first bunch. :D

    Thanks for the compliments Deb and Asia. Deb, I’ve learned to not throw away used jewelry parts cause you never know when a “brilliant” idea might come along that needs that exact piece. :D
