Design based on a pick, some of the goodness Mother Earth shares with us (I realize this has more mushroomery goodness than moss...)

Components:

Brown Line Agate, Espresso Agate, Czech glass amber rectangles, Chrome Diopside, Dragon Blood Jade pebbles, tan ceramic beads, Bronzite, mushrooms I made from some leftover suede fabric

    I agree – It does look like a forest floor. The earthy colors are so beautiful. Love your swede mushrooms. And the large stones really add to the forest feeling..

    I like the pebbles up front…and the hint of green from the Chrome Diopside for the moss. Your leather scraps look more like little trees to me…which still goes with your motif.

    Thanks very much for the nice comments ladies – I am always unsure when I post something that I really like and I know kind of goes against the grain…I’m guessing that a lot of people don’t like mushrooms or brown, or moss or getting dirty! things like that, so it is super nice to hear comments like yours – thank you!

    The Mother Earth, mushroomy goodness works for me. It is a walk in the woods on an autumn day and I would wear it in a heart beat. Love the color and the design.

    Yes, this bracelet is full of lush, natural goodness! At first I thought your leather mushrooms were tree branches, but I can clearly see them now. The added green is perfect for the moss too. I really get frustrated when bracelets swirl around on my wrist & the clasp ends up on top–but adding the larger ceramics would remedy this problem. I always have to weight my bracelets to hang correctly because of my small wrists & sometimes it’s a big challenge working that into the design. Another favorited design!
