Autumn Leaves - Moonlight Pendants by magpie-poet Autumn Leaves - Moonlight Pendants by magpie-poet
Coated copper, peridot, citrine, carnelian and garnet.

The sizes vary, but are mostly just shy of 1 3/4" long by 1 1/4" wide.

Playing more with the glow in the dark silver coated copper frames. I can say it's for halloween, but really, glow in the dark will pretty much never not amuse me!

(Sadly, it's just the frames that glow, I still haven't found thin glow in the dark wire. I found glow in the dark paint that I can mix with other colors though, that is ripe for overuse...)

This time with an autumn forest. Still trying to figure how to get the gilded green effect on some of the trees. Also trying out the same color variations with different trunk colors. Still haven't decided if I like the rich aged copper brown or the gunmetal grey trunks. What do you think?

I think both look pretty nice with the slightly matte silver of the glow wire. I think the gunmetal will be great for snowy trees, but I'm not sure I want to tempt fate with some of those just yet!

If anyone's interested these are available for $25+shipping, note me if one caught your eye.

Some of their precious metal cousins are available here [link]

Oh, and my recent blog entry on the causes of fall leaf colors [link]

And if you'd like to try trees yourself: [link] Let me know if you use it or have any suggestions, please! I just started my wire class and anything that could make it easier on the students would be brilliant!

In my oppinion for a tree the copper wire fits better than the silver-like wire. Yes, all of them are nice:) I have been planning to make similar trees for a long time. Maybe one day=) I know, how to do it, but I don't have the resource materials for it=)
Congrats for the work! =)

Give it a shot sometime, I used plain copper before moving on to coated and precious.

I really like your use of multitone gemstone chips. Still a fan of all your trees, but have to say love your Jacaranda's the best. Still on the hunt for those purple blues....

I love the colours from the one left bottom. The combo with the rich copper and the warm tones in the chips makes it finished for me.
I can understand that the gilded green effect is a pain in the .. well you know where:P
Maybe a harder green to use so you go from light to darker?

I would love to find a darker green! It's been a real, pain in the-as you said. The only aventurine I found was too blobby. And green tourmaline is out of my range. One of these days I'll find the perfect color and freak out the dealer by getting hyperanimated ;)

Maybe some malachite? or do you want the translucent ones?

Hahaha I would love to see the dealers face when you jump up and down!

All the malachite I've found thus far have been dusty looking. Though, you're right, I prefer translucent, but I wouldn't turn down a nice strand ;)

Hmm Well i know a place where you can buy them here, but i don't know if they deliver where you live. I can ask a question if it possible if you want.. and i dont know your budget.. so that would be handy aswell before i ask..

Honestly it's pretty small at this point! I try not to spend over $10/strand on my stone chips, because otherwise it raises the price of the trees a little more than people want to pay. (I learned this with my tanzanite, but oh how I love the color, so that's okay, at least I made a present for my mother with one and one for me!)

I found a place where they sell some cheaper chips.. And i see that they deliver almost everywhere.
[link]. I ordered with them before and they are ok on quality and also ok on prizes.
The other one i had does not deliver outside NL..
