When I found out that our gemstones would be going on sale, I was really excited.  I have been eyeing the green/red agate for a while and knew they would be lovely for fall.  The mix of green and red and brown tones remind me of caramel apples.

I thought copper complimented the color of the stones really well and added to the crisp fall feeling I was going for.

The leaf chain is another item I have been dying to play with for a long time.  Its delicate but it adds movement and interest to any piece.  I’m looking forward to making a pair of earrings to match the bracelet.

I went with a simple toggle clasp for this bracelet.  Toggle clasps are good for bracelets since they are easy to use.  Toggles work particularly well for pieces with a little bit of weight to them.

I used 9 of each type of stone.  I attached the larger ones directly to the chain with head pins.  The smaller two were gathered onto a jump ring and then attached to the chain.

It took me about an hour while watching TV to complete the bracelet.  Here is a copy of my shopping list if you are interested in purchasing these items to make a bracelet of your own.  If you don’t like copper, the chain comes in silver and gold as well.

All of our gemstones are on sale for 30% off so if you don’t like the colors I’ve picked out, pick out some that are better suited to your tastes.
