It was a while I was thinking of making vine branches into a necklace! It is a friends birthday tomorrow and I was planning to make a necklace I can wear with a gray velvet blouse! I put whole spare times of this week to make and destroy my crafts and play with wires to produce the shape enough satisfying for me! Well finally this was the the necklace I made!

It is made by twisted silver filled half round wire, sterling silver stardust beads and indian leather, the clasp and extender is also sterling silver, the leather is connected to end caps by glue which I found very durable and a wire wrapped labradorite briolette and a grape leaf (which is more like a maple leaf I guess!) are hanged from the twisted wire! Smiley I twisted the wire around a pencil and then twisted the two ends more to make them tighter and smaller! the shape of the twist is completely free and randomized! Smiley
You can also try to make it if you liked Smiley

Killer wirework!  What attention to detail.  This piece is truly lovely.
