I'm a newbie, want to say hi!
So I made this necklace awhile back, one of my favorite pieces.  It's simple and goes with any outfit, formal or casual.  I really like the vintage looking gold leaf.  I used blush color freshwater pearls, light citrine, amber, and turquoise.  I wired them with goldfilled wire and little sections of copper links at the lobster claw.

Did you fabricate the gold leaf yourself? If you did can you tell what technique you used?

Sorry, I didn't fabricate the leaf, I bought it from a jewelry show.  I would love to know how to do it myself too!
