I have always found comfort and happiness when I was busy designing and creating. I have many interests and talents and often I am torn when deciding which art medium to work creatively in. Decorative painting is my first love; however, I also enjoy stenciling, jewelry making, sewing, crochet, needlework of all kinds, cooking, card making, faux finishes, decorating and gardening. Working in the craft and hobby industry for many years, I have enjoyed the pleasures of traveling, teaching, and sharing with others basic crafting how-tos! Currently, I am employed as the Marketing Education Director at Plaid. My career journey to this day, is still allowing me the gift of sharing with others the joys of crafting and finding their creative spirits! I hope that our creative paths may cross one day. Until then... happy creating!
This simple and easy-to-create fall inspired jewelry ensemble is not only fun to create but also fun to wear!

Instructions

Necklace

  1. Squeeze a small amount of Red Clay and Deep Gold jewelry glazes onto the silicone work mat.
  2. Apply Red Clay glaze to the leaf and filigree rounds using a stippling up and down motion.
  3. If desired, add a touch of Deep Gold glaze on the edges of the leaf and filigree rounds.
  4. The acorn body is glazed Red Clay and its hat is glazed Deep Gold. Allow to dry. Flip leaf charm and filigree settings over and repeat to glaze the back sides.
  5. Using small flush cutters, cut three ovals of the fat oval gold chain.
  6. Attach one end of the three oval chain lengths to the bottom of the open leaf using a jump ring.
  7. Determine the desired length of your necklace and cut chain to add to the top portion of the glazed leaf charm. Connect the chain to the leaf charm using a jump ring.
  8. Cut the other half of the necklace length so that it’s equal in length to the half that is assembled.
  9. Attach the second half of the chain necklace to the completed side using jump rings at the center. Be sure to attach the glazed acorn using the same center jump ring..

Earrings

  1. Attach the glazed filigree round setting to the ear wire using a jump ring. Repeat for second earring.
Tip: Try adding additional glazed leaf charms as sectional spacers throughout the necklace.
