Between challenges

The next challenge is the Lima Bead challenge that Lorelei organized. Please stop back on Saturday for that big reveal.

In the meantime, I found a couple more fall themed necklaces that I made, photographed, but did not post yet! Acorns have really been my theme lately. I was making them in the weeks that lead up to yesterday's challenge.

This first necklace has the same horn beads with acorn caps that I used in the Very Vintage challenge. Added to that are some iridescent green Czech beads and small matte red pony beads. The green wood grain focal is from the "Varnish" line, I think by Blue Moon. My niece was with me when I bought them and she did not think I should get them. But, I kinda like them here (& in the next necklace, as you'll see). I recently also purchased (Are you noticing a spending habit here??) the Vintaj Oak Leaves - really prettier in person! Finally, instead of chain, I used some tan greek leather.

And a slightly different perspective.

Very similar to the above necklace, this one has the same focal, the same oak leaves, same Czech beads, same bead caps, but the acorns are made from olive wood beads.

There's some groovy fake wood grain goin' on!

Different, but the same....same oak leaves, same bead cap (because I am in love with the bead caps), red-orange dyed Howlite focal and orange flower bead (coral, I think), a felt bead acorn, and opaque orange crystals.
I think I need to move on from the Autumn themed jewelry. It is my favorite time of year, but it's getting a little ridiculous. My necklaces for Saturday's reveal are not fall themed at all, thank goodness!


  1. Where did you get those beads you used to make the acorns in the first two photos? I have fallen in love with them and must marry them immediately. Great job on all the pieces!!

  2. Hi Cynthia, thanks so much for signing up for the contest and becoming a follower! LOVE the oranges in your necklace, yumm. Feels like fall for sure. Take care, Riki


Thanks so much for leaving me a comment!
