Autumn and winter necklace

I have just finished making a necklace for myself, I decided most of my necklaces are too short to wear with my autumn and winter wardrobe, I wanted something a bit longer 20 to 24 inches to go with sweaters and my high neck tees and fleeces.

I decided to choose a focal from my box of gemstone leaves and settled on a gorgeous rich coloured carnelian piece I embellished it with gold wire and gave it a bale, I had a box of fire agate and crab fire agate, I liked the crab fire agate with it best as it didn't detract from the strong colour of the carnelian but harmonised but I did chose just two nuggets of the fire agate, I also used some feldspa for its soft neutral beige and brown.  I love the warm colours with the gold vermeil rondels and shepherds hook clasp, this necklace will work so well with lots of things in my wardrobe.
I shall certainly be making some more to go with other outfits!

Just gorgeous. That would go wonderfully with a heavy cream sweater.
