Cascading Autumn

by: Cynthia Kolyn-Tough

After months of staring at these beautiful brass leaves, I was finally hit with an inspiration! I do not know if it just came to me or if it was because I was surrounded with inspiration at the Bead Fair, but it came none the less.  With just a few jump rings, a few crystals, and a few brass leaves - you have yourself a very funky and elegant pair of earrings worthy of this time of year.

The trick to these earrings is to attach the leaves at different times to give the dangling effect. The first leaf needs to be attached to the eyepin and the second leaf needs to be attached to a jumpring which is dangled at the bottom of the cluster of crystals. This will give off the cascading effect which they are named for.

All of the crystals should be hung on one jumpring which is to be attached to the eyepin. This creates the clustered look.
