3 Free Project: Falling leaves necklace

Form an asymmetrical wire necklace in the spirit of autumn. The focal and accent drops incorporate red coral beads for a vibrant look. For this necklace, remember to measure twice and cut once. If you are new to wireworking, practice with copper before using expensive silver, or substitute the less expensive metal. Copper is naturally autumnal in color!

Leaf lariat

4 Free Project: Leaf lariat

Free-form fringe clusters disguise a branching herringbone rope — a stylishly practical way to taper the thickness of this lush lariat. Dripping with an abundance of copper-coated leaves, this lovely lariat is the perfect autumn accessory.
