Welcome to my blog! When I started this blog it was all about wire crochet jewelry. I fell in love with the first piece I saw and I had to learn how. I was "hooked"!

"Back to Nature" Wood Beads & Leather Necklace

For some reason lately I'm attracted to leather in jewelry.  Maybe it's the changing seasons.  I've never done much with it until lately.  I guess I'm going through  a leather phase!  I have a few other ideas I'd like to try, too.

  I crocheted this necklace with wood beads on bronze wire and attached a piece of brown leather on each side.   Matching earrings were made by adding a round wood bead and wood donuts to large bronze jumprings.

Stop every now and then.  Just stop and enjoy.  Take a deep breath.  Relax and take in the abundance of life.

Great set, definitly something I would wear...personally I tend to gravitate a great deal to the earthy tones...do you find your customers favor the earthy tones? I don't find mine do at all, which disappoints me as I would like to work more with copper etc,...

Enjoy your day...

How did I miss this post? This is stunning! I love the bulk of the design. I am a leather freak with jewelry, I love how it is casual and at the same time - wear it when you dress up - to me it says I am who I am no matter what I wear.

I love this!
