Greetings from the Bead Doctor

Bead Doctor Greetings - Leaf necklace tutorial

I am in love with leaves!

I am absolutely in love with the new leaf mix from Beads Unlimited. These gorgeous charms are so rich in detail they need little embellishment. So, as part of my Autumn collection, I have put together this simple tutorial. It takes just four easy steps to create this pretty necklace. This makes for my favourite combination – minimum effort and maximum results!

I have added all my Autumn themed tutorials to the blog this week to kick start the new season and you could win all the materials needed for any one of them!

Giving it away

With the nights drawing in there will be a lot less basking on the patio and a lot more beading by the fire. To warm your Autumn evenings we are giving away, not one, but four kits this week!

    I would love to win this one, i fugure having all those leafs in your hand must feel like picking up a hand full of autumn leafs you just raked together. Also wearing it and feeling the leaves gently swing around your neck surely must make you feel like the tree, trying to hold on to them just that little bit longer, trying keeping its few leafs left on to be covered for that cold winter comming.

    Autumn to me, is all about kicking through the crisp fallen leaves, so I would LOVE to win this, so I can have a reminder of the leaves that were, once the winter draws in and they are all gone.

    I would love to win this one because the textures are divine like the mix of falling leaves from autumn trees. The charm style is so on trend but with the silver plated finish has a timeless quality to the design. Inspirations from nature always create the most beautiful designs wearable by all. This design would translate into a gorgeous set of matching earrings and bracelet for a matching set. Also with a bit of creativity a splash of colour could be added to match the season.

    I would love to win this kit as I feel it has been put together with care and is simply lovely. :)

  7. Sheila Ann Cordell says:

    I’d like to win the leaf necklace kit, as it’s got the capability to be made just as is; falling around the neck like so many crisp, cool leaves falling from the trees & landing beautifully as a decoration for the collar… or, one could improvise and add to it. Beautiful as is, and has potential to be even more lovely with imagination in the hands of an artisan.
