Mighty Oak in Autumn

About this design:

A dark and Earthy bracelet, (I realize doesn't always appeal to the masses...) but I love the Fall and seeing giant old Oak trees change to their rusty browns before all the leaves fall off - the inspiration for this piece.

Components:

Czech glass dark bronze and red bronze rounds, Brown line Agate coins, Rutilated Quartz, Wood Opalite, daggers, Nunn D. toggle and the Oak leaf is my own

    Beautiful bracelet GZ. I love fall also (and dark and earthy) and your bracelet really speaks mighty oak. The leaf is wonderful.

    Ooooh! Ahhhh! Love this bracelet! I love fall also and the earthy colors. They can be worn with the right colors all year round. I also love the use of the Woodland toggle. It is my favorite.

    Thanks guys! Pam – This is my favorite toggle too, it goes so well with tree/nature themes. I’m glad you guys are okay with the colors, I was afraid I had too much brown…(even though I love brown…)

    I love the daggers in this piece! They remind me of the tree branches…and leaves. I think the browns are fine, because you have a variety of beads in browns, which really work well together. Plus, your leaf charm is great!

    Great piece GZ! I especially like the daggers & how they add that little extra texture to the design. Gotta love the woodland toggle & leaf charm pulling the piece all together. With the cooling weather, the leaves are just starting to turn colors here–it’s a shame there aren’t a lot of them to enjoy like in many parts of the country. Just threw another blanket on the bed last night–the cooling temps are a welcome relief.
