Leaf and berries bracelet with matching earrings

I had been looking at these pretty green peridot chips beads for a while and was having issues on just how to use them.

Then I received some beautiful deep purple amethyst beads, followed by a message from a friend which inspired me to put the peridot chips and the amethyst beads together for this sweet Spring bracelet.

The leaf frame is hammered copper, with the peridot chips wrapped inside the leaf frame in the same manner commonly used to create the popular “tree of life” pieces.

A few amethyst “berries” added at one end to coordinate the leaf with the beads wrapped onto simple wire links, and the bracelet came together nicely.

I had a couple of beaded links left over to use to create the coordinating dangle earrings, too.

    These pieces are wonderfully organic looking – a lovely echo of nature. And purple + lime make a striking palette. I especially like the leaf shape you used for the peridot chips.

    This bracelet is beautiful. The peridot wrapped on the leaf is lovely and the berries are the perfect complement to it.
