Happy fall, y’all! It’s the perfect time to add a touch of fall to your jewelry projects by showcasing leaves galore! Here are a few popular projects that all feature leaves. From glass leaf beads and copper leaf charms, to leaf statement pendants and modern leaf connectors, these fall jewelry projects are sure to add elegance to your favorite looks of the season!
We love everything about this crocheted necklace! The patina of the leaf charms goes perfectly with the sage-green of the briolettes. And the way the leaves hang from the crocheted silk cord makes it look like the leaves are falling through the air. Such a neat effect!
This long necklace features two leaf statement pendants and a hammered gold ring dangling from a chunky citrine gemstone. Knotted silk cord ties in cobalt and olive add a colorful contrast––and a little whimsy! (The sliding knot “clasp” is super cool, too!)
The modern leaf connectors in these Gold Leafy Earrings do all the heavy lifting! We got them at a bead show, but you can find some beautiful ones on Etsy too, like these. Just make sure they have both a top loop and a bottom loop so you can add the bicone bead dangles. So pretty!
The Czech glass, leaf beads in this wirework necklace are definitely the stars! These midnight blue beads have an iridescent finish that shines in purple, green, and turquoise, giving the leaves a moody, oil-slick look. Plus, the leaf beads are top-drilled, like briolettes, so they sit back and forth on the wire, giving the necklace a lot of visual movement. This necklace is definitely an autumn showstopper!
