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! =)

Thank you :)

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