My favorite season is here! I just love love love sitting on my back porch and looking at the array of fall colors. My town is known as the city of trees, and rightfully so. It looks like a crayola box:) This season has inspired me to make one of my favorite earring and necklace combos so far. The necklace is a combination of metal, glass, stone and wire. It hangs about 6-7inches from the neck and would nicely compliment a turtleneckor sweater. The colors in this necklace include burnt reds and oranges (red jasper stone), copper, burgundy wire, and bronze spacers. The toggle clasp hooks in the front with three dangling pendants that create a chandelier look. This necklace can dress up a casual outfit or accentuate formal wear. Earrings: Using the same materials, I made two matching pairs of wire wrapped earrings with copper ear wires which can be viewed in this post.
