Autumn Colors

About this design:

This was a past box from my bead club that was on clearance. I love Fall colors as you well know. I added only the chain used, a strip of 10mm cork, and a gold leaf pendant.


The beads were wood, ceramic, shell, seed beads and glass. All of the beads plus the main copper leaf and one gold leaf. I added a second gold leaf from my stash.

    The style of your necklace is great! These kinds of ideas aren’t part of the gallery in my brain! I’d have to see a picture to be reminded to make something similar. So, into my favs!

    Best use of cork for the win! Love that, love the colors! Sometimes I see autumn color collections that are rather drab, but yours are the exact opposite. Autumn colors can really be bold and exciting-perfect example here!

    Luv the burst of color! I think it is cool how you used the cork piece in the front to hang all the goodies from–very unique–and it adds to the earthly feel of the design. :)

    Thanks everyone! I am glad you liked it. The colors are bright and cherry. Made me happy to make the necklaces! I thought about how I could incorporate all three leaf pendants and VIOLA! I am learning to rivet and put in eyelets. I think they dress up a leather design!

    The colors are fabulous and I love what you did with the cork.
    Is your bead club like a subscription box?

    I too, am loving your colours in this. The cork with the rivets is such a neat idea. I would never have thought to use it this way. Very nice. :)

    That cork strip caught my eye right away. Very clever design. Really beautiful use of color and texture too.
