Carnelian overload

About this design:

I absolutely adore carnelian. It's the perfect fall color. Since I live in the southwest I don't get to see the changing colors of the leaves on the trees. I got this carnelian triangular heishi from LB as well as the carnelian leaves and I made an homage to changing leaves.

    Beautiful design! How pretty are those carved Carnelian beads? I also love the shades of Carnelian,as well as it’s “feel.”
    Here’s a shot of what’s goin on the NH. Now you can see how well you’ve captured the season. Just took this from my balcony.
    Cheers from New England. ;)

    Hi Nancy,
    The heishi is not carved but the leaves are. Thanks for the gorgeous picture! That’s the one thing I miss about my home state, Michigan. That and apple cider mills. Fall in the midwest and east is so beautiful. Don”t miss the winters though!

    Nancy and i had the same thought about a pic.
    I was mesmerized by a tree that had turned ‘fire’ red. I’ll post it tomorrow.

    I used the carnelian triangle heishi in a set for a friend. Not enough left to make anything for myself. :(
    You have convinced me to buy some more!
