Owls, leaves, and stones create a dark and moody collection.
Owl Forest Necklace Layer together a collection of small charms to make a big impact.
Resources: Vine Polymer Clay Bead: Humblebeads.com Owl Charm: Nunn Designs/LimaBeads.com Leaf Charms & Chain: Vintaj/LimaBeads.com Czech Glass & Stones: LimaBeads.com Clasp: Stinkydogbeads.com
Designer Tip: Create a tendril on the top of the vine bead. Use 6" of 20 gauge wire, leave 2" of wire to wrap the top loop. After you create the wrap, use the last 3/4" of the wire and wrap around round nose pliers several times to create tendrils.

Dark & Story Night Bracelet Wear this bracelet with the clasp on top the artisan pewter creation by Green Girl Studio is too awesome to hide!
Bracelet Resources: Polymer Clay Disk: Humblebeads.com Stones: AllegoryGallery.com Czech glass: Limabeads.com Leaf charm: Vintaj/Limabeads.com
Designer Tip: Hide the crimp beads with charms or dangles like I did with the leaf and flower near the clasp. Use small beads near the toggle bar so it will slide easily through the hole.
Falling Leaves Earrings Cluster together a collection of lightweight leaf charms for these earrings. Use two jump rings on the back leaf to give it length. Use smaller hook wires to shorten the length if these are too long.
Layers Layers Layers! I'm obsessed with layering charms this season. Pick charms that are lightweight with contrast in color, texture and size.

Mums the Word!
I love a pretty pendant that only takes minutes to create! Use whatever beads you have on hand that match your focal. Tie leather cord to finish the design.
Use 6" of 20 gauge wire, place 2" through the bead. pull both ends of the wire around the top of the bead. Use the smaller side of the wire to wrap around the longer wire two times. Add your beads to the longer wire and create a wrapped loop at the top.

Designer Tip: I started with 36" of waxed linen folded in half. I pulled it through the button clasp three times and then knotted both sided together. String on a small bead to fit under the button. When using beads with smaller holes, string one side of the linen through the bead and then tie both together.
