Rustic Asymmetric

About this design:

I love LB’s Zola patina brass beads and charms I bought a while ago. After stringing some with a few genuine turquoise beads and connecting to a chain in one necklace, I decided to go a bit more rustic with LB leather knotted in another.


LB Zola patina green beads and bird charms, LB 2mm natural dark green round leather, antique brass 3mm cord end, and a couple of my own brass cord ends used as spacers. Also an antique brass toggle from an old stash.

    Oh Kathryn, thank you. I love the patinaed brass but struggle with how to use such large beads. So perfect with leather.
    This simply beautiful & beautifully simple! Tucking this away for future inspiration.

    What a wonderful set! The leather really is a great choice with the patina brass beads. The bird earrings are really sweet.

    I can’t change your main photo but copied & edited on my IPad. I hope it comes out right side up. There’s no way to check until I submit my comment!

    Moogie, thank you! I fixed it with your help! When I checked on it after your post, it was still upside down. But your new photo helped me. Thanks LB friends!
