Some Weekend Beads

Dark silver plum and amber focal with electroformed leaf from my yard

Copper leaf lapped focal bead, encased in a copper shell with matching leaf accents. Three views of the same bead.

It's the big melt down here in Indianapolis! It is finally warm enough to melt some of the ice and snow. Spring is just around the corner, and I couldn't be more ready for it's arrival and the new life it brings with it!

I'm excited for the new leaves to harvest. Fresh leaves provide a very smooth finish on my electroformed leaf beads, and they are much easier to work with. I made a few leaf beads this weekend, using leaves from last fall, which are shown above.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
