I made these two nature necklaces for Bobolink and Jane Doe recently. They were fun to make, and really different from anything else I've made. I was inspired by something I saw in Jane Doe's wists.

Wow, I'm so surprised and flattered to see this thread come back! To answer your questions, I was inspired by this piece: http://njadean.livejournal.com/18796.html from Jane Doe's wist, I had her as a swap partner wen I made this and I really liked the original piece and was inspired to try it.
I don't sell anything, really, but I'd be happy to tell you what I remember of how I made it!

I got several different novelty yarns that looked "mossy", plus some lion suede chenille in dark brown. I formed the basic shape out of wire and then wrapped it with lots of the chenille to make the base, and formed a hook shape and a knot to close it. Then I wrapped the various mossy looking yarns around wires and looped those around the base, bending them to create shape. Last I wrapped some plain wire around and randomly strung beads, shells, tiiny bells and findings with the large stone as an off-center focal point. I bent the wire to place the bits and add texture. That's about it, I think. It wasn't hard but it was really, really fun and a little time consuming, wrapping all that yarn. Give it a try!

And thanks for the nice comments! I love being "discovered" in an older thread!  Smiley
