What fun it was to add a splash of color. Most people automatically think falling leaves when they think of Autumn. So my first choice was to find a leaf pendant. Then, trying to stay with Pantone's Fashion Report, I choose various colors of Swarovski crystals.
For the necklace, a cube Swarovski crystal and the leaf pendant are suspended from a larger size copper ring. Smaller crystals are woven into the tangled web of copper wire, alternated with a big round faceted Swarovski crystal. My handcrafted copper leaves hang from a Swarovski crystal to make these matching earrings.
While hunting around Artbeads.com website, I came across this lovely brass toggle clasp that was a must have. For this bracelet I wanted to keep the clasp the focus. Glass beads and pearls are rotated with coiled brass wire and a couple Swarovski Cosmic Rings.
This ring was inspired by the most recent issue of Step by Step Wire. A ring similar to this was highlighted in the article about crystals. The color, Meridian Blue, doesn't really follow the color report but it seems to change color depending on how the light hits it.
And that is what autumn is all about...change...the changing from summer to winter...from vibrant colors to more subdued colors.
