I am making progress on the leaf jewelry I am designing. The process of making the leaves has been worked out in copper and I am now transitioning to silver.
I want to use beads with the silver leaves and have selected these beads as the palette I will work with. They are blue lace agate and amazonite gemstones and “Dug” trade beads from Mali. I think it is a lovely palette to work with. I don’t really have a preconceived notion of how I will put them together – I will go with what feels right at the time.
