I made myself a Maple Leaf necklace I think is just gorgeous. Now I just need to find a shirt to go with it!
I made some earrings and I'm thinking if I found some orange glass beads I could make a pair to match it.


The front:


The back (which my mother likes better because of the center vein, so I guess you could say it's reversible):

Did you make the leaf bead thingy, or did you buy it?

Thank you!

I bought it from Fire Mountain Gems... A bit rich for my blood, it was $7, but I think it was worth it. It was so pretty. Smiley

The pendant is an amazing color. How big is it? And is it glass?

Thank you for all the lovely compliments! lady-in-the-radiator, that makes me happy you like it so well. ^_^

It is a real leaf covered in expoxy and is 70x65mm, or approximately 2 3/4 by 2 1/2 inches. It is rather bold, but it's just so gorgeous!

That is really beautiful.  That could make even the coldest and rainiest autumn day feel crisp and happy.
