Copper leaf earrings for I Might Make that! Monday

Copper leaf earrings by Zoraida
of Patchogue, NY, via Making Jewelry Now
One of the reasons I started this weekly IMMT!M feature is that I knew I had dozens of patterns and tutes bookmarked on my computer that I could never, ever find when I wanted (or even remember what I had saved).

Here's an example of one I originally came across who knows how long ago: some simple leaf earrings made out of copper sheet. It appeared in Rena Klingenberg's excellent e-newsletter, Making Jewelry Now. (That link is to her website; look on the page for how to sign up for her free e-newsletter.)

I wish I could link directly to the artist's site as well, but the link on the e-newsletter to Zoraida's site, Spiralbead, doesn't appear to get me there, and a blog search didn't turn up anything.

Please check out Rena's site--it has tons of good resources. I especially like her jewelry display ideas, featured on her companion website and featured in the e-newsletter.

  1. Hi:
    The earrings look pretty.Remind me my 'old times',when I started my jewelry adventure:-)
    It would be fine to make a similar pattern ,with the use of copperlike'Preciosa',or 'Delica'
    seed beads,to make those leaves beaded:-)
    I feel,I am lost for the beadweaving at all!:-)))
