Playing in Fall Leaves

First up we have Katie from BlackStar with her Autumn Leaves necklace. Hand knotted on red silk with vintage red and periwinkle glass leaves and brick red freshwater pearls, this pretty piece definitely has me ready to play!

LinkThe next entry thrown into our little leaf pile comes from Jean of 3squares. Jean entered her gorgeous Peruvian Blue necklace, which is made of a periwinkle blue swirly leaf fabric that's surrounded by a lovely hand-cut sterling silver frame.

Our third entry is from Carmela of Beggar's Tomb Pottery, who entered her Leaf trinket dish. Carmela made this cool stoneware dish by pressing a Paulownia tree leaf into a slab and raising the edges to make a shallow bowl.

Next up we have Rebecca from Knee Deep Originals and her Moore's Wall in Fall oil painting. Inspired by the view from her bedroom window in mid-October, this beauty is perfect for this Challenge!
Erica from Mazzy Jewelry Designs was next with her Autumn Leaves necklace, which is a long wrap necklace with oxidized sterling silver and lemon quartz. Erica says "This piece reminds me of those golden leaves softly floating down to earth."

Suz from Simply Suzula is our next entrant with her vintage hand embroidered cotton napkins. Purchased from a girls orphanage in Niamey, Niger in the early '80s, these napkins feature African baobab trees in orange, gold, and brown.

Our final entry this week comes from Jill of Moonlight Beadworks. Jill entered her Copper Tree Pendant Beadwoven Necklace. This one-of-a-kind beauty started as a copper blank which Jill stamped, etched, sanded and heated until there seemed to be a twilight sunset behind the tree.
