Autumn Leaves Statement Necklace with Gemstones

by Glitterama Crafts

October
27

Dimensions:
Centre Leaf: 45 x 48mm (1.8 x 1.9in)
Right Leaf: 53 x 25mm (2.1 x 1in)
Left Leaf: 60 x 20mm (2.4 x 0.8in)
Chain Length: 44cm (17.3in)

I hand-poured jewel enamels from my melting pot to make the 3 leaves. Whilst hot I embedded twisted rose gold and bronze tone wire and then wire wrapped the leaves together. I coloured the leaves using gilding wax and mica powders in gold, bronze, red, purple and a little green. I added AB coated clear seed beads to wire to make the Frost and then strung frosted rose quartz rounds, pink quartz rounds, green quartz rounds and light green dyed quartz rounds around the original wire to give a look of berries with the leaves. I then added a couple of "branches" with red glass crystal berries. Once everything was wired together I added an antique copper style chain along with a contrasting handmade twisted wire clasp.

To hang correctly, the leaf on the right should be slightly higher than the leaf on the left, with the large ivy leaf centred.
