Blu Mudd Design Challenge

I had the pleasure of being a participant in the Blu Mudd Design Challenge 5.  Moriah Betterly a very talented clay artist furnished each artist with a leaf cuff, acorn and 3 matching tubular beads.  There were different color pallets, randomly mailed to the artists so the color choices were by surprise!  I love surprises!  My pieces were green, red with the tiniest hint of blue....well here let me show you.  (The photo will enlarge if you click on it :)

Leaf & Acorn Challenge 5  Vote for me here :)
I purchased complimentary beads from my local bead shop "The Bead Strand" in Ocala, FL.  For my design I chose Miyuki 8/0 seed beads in 4 colors. 3 in different hues in Picasso seed beads, and a deep reddish hue matte seed bead. The colors in the seed beads seemed to be from the same glaze Moriah used on the leaf.  I thought the beads complimented the leaf so well I had to use them.  I chose to create my necklace using a spiral herringbone stitch.

Well I had a little acorn left over, and a vintage copper leaf choker necklace that was begging to become a bracelet is what I made with my little acorn:

This piece isn't part of the challenge, click on the photo to see it larger.  The touch of patina is natural on the earrings and bracelet.
