First up is an amazing set of handcrafted copper leaves from firstfruitdesigns. They be would perfect with my new copper Branches Disk Beads and oh, look at this find, a branch toggle clasp in copper from BeadSupplies. I must have these!
Next is a harvest inspired set with copper ball headpins from HigherChakraSupply, don't they look like fruit ready for the picking? I'd continue the dot theme with Jangle's woodsy ceramic bead. And the center piece? This amazing Shibuichi Tree of Knowledge pendant from Green Girl Studios offered by Cathy Dailey. Apple cider anyone?
Not ready to give up the sunshine? Here are some harvest gold glass beads from BobbiThisnThat. They say charm bracelet to me paired up with a collection of copper filigree leaves from ArtfulMarket. And the clasp? Why, an oregano leaf button from Creative Impressions in Clay.
Doesn't Lynn's Zephyr bead in Paprika just make you want to book a trip to Vermont to see the leaves change colors? I'd use these Art Deco looking leaf charms from RockStash with Hammered copper rings from Prolifique to create a necklace with lots of linked pieces using copper wire.
Want your leaves with a modern twist? Start with a set of Cindy Gimbrone's glass spirals in bronze, sprinkle in these organic metal disks sold by lustrousthings and use a graphic leafy clasp from BrazenButton to carry off the design. Add in bold copper chain and you'll a statement necklace perfect for fall.
