Even though the colors of Autumn are scarce here in the Borderlands desert, my thoughts always turn to the incredible beauty of trees as they turn from green to their brilliant Fall wardrobe.
The Autumn Aria earrings were created with this thought in mind: green lampwork beads wrapped with copper mesh on top and then the transformation of leaves to an earthy copper color hanging below.
Copper bead caps mimic the pattern of the copper mesh in the lampwork beads and the veins of the leaves. The copper leaves certainly dance from the ears each time the head moves!
The lampwork beads were handmade by Charlotte of Covergirlbeads and the copper leaves by Kristi of KristiBowmanDesign – I love designing jewelry with their pieces!.
