Leaves of Gold Necklace in Unexpected Findings
And speaking of fun things to look forward to this Fall, another is a new jewelry-making book I'm really excited about! Unexpected Findings: 50+ Clever Jewelry Designs Featuring Everyday Componentsby Michelle Mach. I'm proud to be a contributing designer to Michelle's first book. I have 5 jewelry projects among the pages and I could not be happier.
Today, I wanted to showcase one design in particular. My autumn-inspired, bohemian chic statement necklace called "Leaves of Gold". A trip to Vermont last October was the inspiration for this piece. It was so beautiful there. We had lunch in Brattleboro, VT. The downtown was picturesque. I remember giant green mountains dotted with GOLD, red and orange trees against a bright blue sky. The main street was filled with all these cute little artisan galleries and shops with an eclectic mix of art and handcrafted wares from furniture to jewelry. I could imagine a hip, stylish girl walking down that street wearing boots and a sweater, sporting this necklace!
Unexpected Findings: 50+ Clever Jewelry Designs Featuring Everyday ComponentsJust by looking at this necklace, you might be wondering what the "unexpected" finding is? It's not exactly obvious. At least, I don't think so. Can you tell what it is? Well, if not, you'll have to wait til my next post about this book or better yet, get the book now and find out for yourself.
