October will be over in just a few days. Already our glorious autumn foliage has faded and the leaves are beginning to scatter across the yard and tumble in the breeze.
But look! What's that up there in the branches, hanging on so tenaciously?
It's "One Last Leaf" -- the one that inspired my farewell to October jewelry set, which I just listed for Etsy Project Embrace.
The lovely hammered copper leaf was created by the super talented Deedee of DnJ Dichroic Art Glass.
~ I've created an 18-1/2" strand of cranberry and topaz luster freshwater pearls, copper beads, copper plated spacers, and an antiqued copper chain. The matching bracelet is 8" long. The earrings measure 2" from the tops of their copper colored niobium earwires.
~ Both hammered copper clasps are handcrafted, and I've given them a warm antiqued patina to match the pendant.
I'll donate 10% of the proceeds from the sale of "One Last Leaf" to the American Cancer Society in honor of my friend and fellow Etsian Laura Slocum ~ lauraslocumpainted.etsy.com.
