    Beady, what a gorgeous necklace and so perfect for fall! What are the yellow beads at the bottom? The glass leaves are awesome! I will revisit this many times to take in the detail. Love it!

    Great colors for Fall. Nice idea for the focal ‘ropes’ with the bright yellow beads & leaves. Those Calypso leaves are to die for–one of my faves too. Do you add all your new designs to your shop? Your work is varied from elegant to playful–I enjoy seeing what’s next!

    Beady, where have you been getting all these new ideas lately? This is very beautiful and just a little different from a lot of your designs. You’ve been branching out with new ideas lately. While this is definitely a BLE type of necklace, it’s also quite different. Love these colors and everything about it.

    Thanks to all of you.
    Robin – The yellow beads were not labeled but I believe they are recycled glass.
    Crystal – I don’t add all of my designs to my shop but I usually put them on my website. Or sometimes I keep them. Tee hee.
    KR – I don’t know where my ideas come from. I think I just like nature. I like to play around with beads to try different things. I started with the big yellow bead and wanted something to kind of resemble a flower. It actually reminds me of a pineapple but with downward leaves.

    Beady this is a fabulous necklace in so many ways – it has many little intricate nuances and details, I need to keep going back to look at it and each time I see something I didn’t see before. Love it, beautiful.

    Thanks so much GZ. I had to redo this one – I started out with a 6 bead herringbone but decided to change course. Here is the first try.

    You aimlessly wandered into a great fall necklace with gorgeous yellow beads and green leaves.

    Thanks LRC. Seems like I change course a lot. Plenty of wasted thread.

    This is beautiful. I seem to always like your rope stitches the most. You used such pretty beads to compliment the flowers. Wandering aimlessly is a good way to create and play around with a design.
