Beaded Necklace How-To: Fall Foliage Print
designed by Ashley Bunting

Fall Foliage Necklace

We have a wonderful assortment of vintage raw metal leaves.  Many of them are hole-less and require a little altering.  These copper leaf blanks are easy to bend and offer a whole lot of options.  Raw brass and copper provide perfect autumn coloring and make lovely shimmery little leaves.

(17) Vintage Copper Twist Willow Leaf Blank 10x38mm 10pc.

(6) Vintage Gun Metal Plate Flower Beads Dot Textured 5 Petal Cup Flower 16mm each

(6) Sea Glass Style Round Beads 6mm Topaz Matte 32 beads +/- (18") Basemetal Chain Antique Copper Plated Long & Short Link 2-4mm per foot (2) Copper Open Jump Rings 6mm 100pc

(1) Copper Lobster Claw Clasps 8x15mm 5pc. (6) Gold Plated Basemetal 20g Headpins 2" 144pc


Step 1:

Grasp the thin end of the leaf blank with round-nose pliers and gently bend over into a loop.  Repeat to all the leaves.  Attach the leaves, start by attaching one to the long chain link in the center of the necklace.  Attach leaves on either side of the necklace to every long chain link until there are seventeen leaves on the chain.


Note: make sure to attach all the leaves off of the same side of the chain.


Step 2:

Feed one topaz round and one gun metal flower onto a head pin.  There are three short links in between the long chain links, feed  the head pin from front to back through the center short link to the right of the center leaf.  Trim the head in to 1/4" and turn a loop.  Repeat on the left side of the center leaf and on either side of the third leaves from the center.


Step 3:

Attach the lobster claw clasp to one chain end using a lobster claw and attach a jump ring to the other chain end.




The End!
