I can’t remember where I got this vintage brass leaf; I think I have another one also. I’ve got to label things better! But I think it’s beautiful. It didn’t have a hole, so I punched and sanded one.

I wire wrapped some small apatite nuggets for the front and used several lengths of delicate gold chain to make a long piece. 

Further toward the neck, I put some bone colored glass beads separated by gold filled stardust beads. I remember being so enthralled by the gold dust beads when I first saw them. These are some of the last I have from those days. My sister’s girlfriend gave me these lovely little coin beads. Thanks, Lisa! They are perfect here. 

I finished it off with a gold Tierra Cast toggle. I wasn’t sure about it at first, but my Dad said that was one of his favorite parts, so I’m going with his design advice.

This long, light necklace will be nice for summer.
