Green leaf

Do you remember this from the silversmithing course I went on at Flux'n'Flame? I had originally thought that I would have small beads hanging down the centre of the leaf, but it just didn't look right. I tried a few other ideas too, until finally I came up with this.

So what do you think? I've used peridot, garnet and amethyst, a combination that I really love. And the peridot means that it qualifies for this week's green colour challenge!

As for last week's challenge, sorry this is late but I haven't been good at taking photos this last week or so. The website is looking a bit bare, but by the end of this weekend it'll be stocked up again - assuming that I don't sell everything tomorrow that is! Anyway, this is one of my triple bangles (I love making these) with beautiful rubies - the colour of these lovelies is even better in real life!


  1. Just beautiful! I think the peridot is perfect with the leaf!
    (Love the bangles, too, and also what you did with the yellow below!)

  2. Love the triple bangles, especially as they have rubies and that is my daughters name :) The leaf is very clever as the little stones at the top look like blossom...well to my eyes anyway! So...what's in store for pink????

  3. Umm blossom... what a great name for the necklace! Glad you like them.

    As for pink, I've got a couple of ideas but you'll have to wait until later in the week for them!

  4. The leaf is just stunning! I could see myself wearing it ; )

    Just letting you know too we are giving away lampwork beads for a competition. I just thought I'd let all my beader links know, cause I don't want you to miss out.


  5. I could easily run away with that leaf - it's just beautiful. Can't wait to see how you tackle Pink Week!

  6. Ooooh, I love the bangles, and the leaf is just perfect!


Thank you for leaving a comment. I read every one and will do my best to get back to you!
