What materials did you use? Carnelian Cabochon which I did Viking Knit Weave on. Attached a tassel of beads consisting of mother of pearl, gold stone, gold faux pearls, amber glass and hand made head pins. The clasp which holds the cabochon is a gold leaf toggle clasp. The chain consists of Viking Knit Weave out of 24 gauge gold beading wire by Cousin Corporation.

What are you most proud of? I am proud of the presentation that Autumn Splendor has all by its self. I feel it has the ability to capture the eye.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you have a variety of beads in different shapes and sizes. Do an array of complimentary colors.

I recreated my Autumn Splendor for the Craftsy Contest. It depicts a crisp, colorful Michigan fall. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.

Autumn Splendor brings a splash of color to the face and the gold stone gives a twinkle to the eye. I am very big in Viking Knit Weave currently. This project was all hand weaved by using a wooden dowel and 24 gauge beading wire by Cousins Corporation. In addition, the setting around the cabochon is Viking Knit Weave also. I hope you all enjoy the thought, creativity, and work that was put into Autumn Splendor. Enjoy!
