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?


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

    Love your design! The separate ‘clusters’ (for lack of a better description) of different beads are very pretty. Love the silk as well.
