Midweek-Mutterings - More Fall Color Pieces
On Monday I decided to make some new pieces that I could wear with autumn outfits. I would have shared this in yesterday's post, but I got home so late Monday night that it was actually Tuesday morning!
I started out by stringing with faceted crystal/olive Czech glass beads and antique brass Swarovski pearls from Rings & Things; various fall color CRYSTALLIZED™ - Swarovski Elements 6mm bicones from Fusion Beads; some tiny (4mm) bead top brass spacer bead caps, from Accessories Susan, and flower petal natural Vintaj brass bead caps from Lima Beads. I decided to do three strands, cap them with a textured 12mm three petaled floral cap in oxidized brass , and finish it off with a hook and eye clasp I bought ages ago at Michael's and no longer have the supplier information (sorry!).
One other thing - those beads look (to me) a bit like old fashioned hot air balloons...I'm thinking of some Steampunk style pieces with, if I can find the right stuff, little "baskets" hanging from them to make hot air balloon jewelry. If I figure it out, you'll see it here first!
