The Five Glass Aspen Leaf Necklace you see here features five of my handmade glass aspen leaf beads, accented by six green firepolished Czech crystals and hung on 14/20 Gold-Filled figure-eight chain. Like real aspen leaves, these have subtle variations in color and shape. These beads are hand-formed in the flame of a torch by layering a transparent glass color over an opaque one. No two glass leaves are exactly alike.
I've made an attempt to capture the autumn color transition as the aspen leaves mature from their summer green. They begin by turning yellow around the edges. There is a moment when most of the leaves on a given aspen tree are a uniform bright yellow. Soon after the color deepens to a golden yellow, and then some brown appears just before the leaves fall.
The standard length for the necklace you see above is 18” and it is finished with a toggle clasp. Different lengths and clasp styles are available by special order. Like all of my jewelry, this design is available in both 14/20 Gold-Filled and Sterling Silver. You can see alternate aspen leaf necklace designs and matching aspen leaf earrings by viewing the Aspen Leaves Page of this site.
Aspen Leaf jewelry can also be custom made with high-karat gold or platinum findings and accented with Swarovski Crystal or gemstone beads. Some examples of my gemstone jewerly can be viewed on the Custom Jewelry Page.
