Must like leaves!

I know I do!  Well, I better like them since I spent the past couple of weeks beading over 50 of them and then using 47 of them to create this Falling Leaves II necklace for a kit.


My original Falling Leaves necklace used almost all the same colors as this new design, except I removed the Colorlined Cream size 11 that I use for the veins and added a new color of Delica in a Raspberry Goldlustre for some of the leaves.  But the feeling of Autumn is pretty much the same.

My original necklace has been a best seller for us in kit form for over 7 years now!



I've had a few requests to do a necklace that wasn't meant to be worn so close to the neck.  So I designed a new necklace using the same Russian Leaf technique as well as a Russian Spiral Rope.  The neckstrap is longer than shown in the photo, but can be adjusted to fit the beaders own personal needs.  There is a hidden clasp in the front under the fall of leaves.

I'm hoping to have it available in kit form very soon in reply to all the lovely requests!

I also had a request to do one in Winter Blues and Whites....not sure that's gonna happen this year!  Maybe next year.  ;o)
