And I didn't get done... I had things ready and all I needed was the chain, but when I went to get some they didn't have any in the right tones. I tried to alter some, but it was still too coppery/red.
So, here are pictures of my focals... we will just imagine the chain.
For this focal, I made a beaded bead in muted fall colors, topped it with the acorn bead cap and then dangled a lucite leaf and a metal leaf. This will hang from an inch of chain attached to a circle connector, which will hang from more chain.
For my second piece, I took some 6 mm bugle beads and wove them to make a mat for one of the filigree connectors. This will hang from 2 half inch lengths of chain below the branch, again with more chain.
