~ Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. ~
The theme this month for Artbeads.com blogging program is "Colors of Fall". I created this piece I call "Autumn's Mosaics" . A mosaic of Czech glass, lapis and fire polished beads dangle above a hand cut, shaped and patina-ed copper leaf, a leaf stamped copper cap keeps the beads all clustered. This one of a kind pendant is strung on a hand dyed silk ribbon. .
Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.George Eliot
Artbeads.com has added a new line called Kabela Design, brass components that are inspired by vintage style with a modern twist. For this piece I used one of the brass filigrees components to frame the etched pendant.I also practiced my fusing and created a copper link chain.

and lastly...."Time to Fly" using another filigree component that I used as a focal with an applied antique enamel watch face. This multi-layer long necklace was created with antique white glass beads, brass filigree and faceted silver glass beads.
