It's been a while since I've posted - sorry to have taken so long. Summer is such a busy time!! (But I have to say something about teals and aqua blues just say summer time over and over again.)
Paired with the copper spacers and clasp, I think the metallic green and blue of these leaves look fancy, but yet still organic. I worked the leaves randomly in different sizes and then arranged them much like a florist would the greenery in a bouquet. When I found what I thought was the perfect "arrangement" I stitched them together and added touches of pearls to mimic a milky little raindrop nestled in among them. (I must give the credit for the leaf technique to the book by Diane Fitzgerald, The Beaded Garden. If you like flowers, and you like to bead, you'll love this book!)
So this is what I ended up with - the Spray of Leaves Necklace!!
As a thank you for the inspiration she gave me, this necklace and the matching bracelet & earrings will be available at my friends shop, Studio 12 Urban Day Spa!! SOLD
