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.


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.
