Autumn With Artbeads, 1 of 2

"Autumn, the year's last,
loveliest smile."
William Cullen Bryant

If you recall, I posted a teaser in this post showing you the beautiful Autumn-colored beads I received from as a part of their Blogging for Beaders program.  I've finished the first of two pieces, and I'd like to share it with you:

"Plum Mists"


The chain for this versatile lariat-style necklace measures a long 50", from the end of the 40mm Purple Resin Ring to the bottom of the Copper Round Small Hoop Pendant With Rings charm hanging from the gorgeous Purple Freestyling Lampwork Bead focal.


The chain is made from copper wire-wrapped 8mm Multi Tourmaline Round Bead links and dragon vein agate links in subtle shades of plum, mauve, sage and forest, perfectly complimenting the stunning focal and resin ring.


The ring is attached with a handmade coiled copper wire loop, and this loop, along with the copper charm  hanging from the bottom of the focal bead, add texture and interest to the necklace design.


I have always loved this color combination, and am quite happy with the design of this piece.  You can find all kinds of jewelry supplies and ideas for your own designs at

This piece will be available for purchase in my etsy shop.  Thanks for stopping by!

Ok, let's try this again - if this doubles the comments I apologize, I had a service error.
I love the length of the necklace and that you can double loop it. The color of the necklace is so delicious and I love the little copper accents - Fantastic

Gorgeous Miss Molly!
I love the earthiness and the lariat style. I create a lot with copper and I love that it will continue to change and morph as it ages. Beautiful!
Enjoy the day!
