Day 11: Autumn Leaves & Berries Necklace

Isn't it crazy that it is almost Autumn again!!?? Where has the summer gone? Not that I am really complaining. Texas summers are BRUTAL. I really think Autumn is the best season in Texas. Although I miss the leaves changing (that tree in our back yard is a Live Oak...which is green year-round). Spring in Texas is super windy. At least here in Dallas. Summers are scorching hot and the humidity...I'm still not used to it after 5 years. Winters are usually pretty mild. But they can be sooooo cold...that blasted humidity again. It feels like it's seeping into your bones. Plus, I think the super-hot summers have made me very sensitive to the cold now.

So yes, Autumn is the best. Mild temps, darker a little earlier....I can wear layers again. Love it.

Oh, and I love making Autumn jewelry. Here is my first attempt this year:

I found these great vintage brass oak leaf charms. They have a nice coppery patina to them. Very fall-ish. I paired this sweet charm with rich red Czech glass nugget beads. The beads also have a slight coppery sheen, so they go well with the leaves' patina.

The chain is antiqued brass and it closes with an antiqued brass lobster clasp and decorative antiqued brass ring.

Measures a little under 17 inches! Available in my Etsy shop!!

So, what did you make today??
