Falling Leaves Quilled Necklace

Hi everyone!  I have neglected my poor little blog and will be posting about the same amount for a couple of more weeks. I am working on the classes for my online quilling class for My Creative Classroom and there are two more weeks to go. So after that I should be back to posting regularly : ) !  

I do have a post for today though and at the first of each month I have projects that I have created for the Custom Quilling Newsletter.  The kit for October had beautiful fall colors in it and I couldn't resist making another jewelry piece.  I used oval filigree jewelry pieces as my base for the quilled leaves.  Each quilled gold gilded leaf gives a flash of fall color when seen from the side. 

The leaves are "falling" down the necklace to the last one that dangles.  Fall color beads dangle amongst the leaves while beads and crystals give it sparkle. I am very ready for fall and we are just now getting some milder temperatures here in Texas, although not any rain!  This is my first online class and I have been enjoying it and the students so much, and they are doing so well!!!  Some of the students have quilling experience and others are just trying it out for the first time. They are very creative and their projects are wonderful!

I still have two projects from the newsletter that I have ready to post and I will get them up later.  Thanks to all who visit and leave such nice encouraging notes!   See y'all later!
