New Necklaces

Over on the Art Bead Scene today it's my turn for Studio Saturday and I shared the inspiration and new collection of Birch beads.  Here are two necklaces I created using them.  This first one features my birch bead and willow disks in pumpkin.  You'll notice the copper and resin branch by Jade Scott, one of my favorites! 

This simpler necklace features some awesome leaf chain that I picked up at Bead & Button and Czech glass leaves from Raven's Journey - oh how I love them and wish they had an online store - don't they know they would make an even bigger fortune than they already do!!!

I whipped this necklace up during the Bead & Button show to display some of my antiqued dogwood pendants.
And a sample project using my toggle clasp/pendant in a simple design.

I should have snatched that leaf chain away from you! ;)
I will be buying big from that store, just got set up for the wholesale side. Watch out! And is that an Industrial Chic connector I see? Well done, my friend!
Enjoy the day!

I am so glad you are back to work. I love all your necklaces!! Each one is divine in it's own way. I passed up some leaf chain in my local bead store because it was sold by the inch. You just inspired me to go back and get some! Love the birch branch as a focal and your dogwoods are so cool. They look like ancient fossilized flowers.

Love them all. But especially the ones with the birch logs. That leaf chain is very very nice.
