I have been over to home park, Hampton Court Palace a few times this week walking a friends dog.  Now that the Autumn has set in, the leaves are falling and the gorgeous earthy colours are emerging.

All the different colours, textures and shapes really appeal to my creative mind.  

With this is mind I am starting to create a range of nature inspired jewellery.

Today I finished this black leaf inspired necklace.  Using my usual free motion machine embroidery and then individually sewing on lovely black beads.
