Color Inspiration - Ruby Blooms
by Kristal Wick
This stunning Japanese Maple tree turning red in the fall foliage stopped me in my tracks! This beauty is in one of my dear pals' front yard and she posted it on Facebook. The sheer colorful brilliance is one thing, but what makes fall foliage so special is the brief time it takes for the leaves to turn colors. Sometimes you're lucky enough to catch them as in this case.
It happens every year, occasionally the weather cooperates and we get many pictures of these beauties, other times they change and fall fast. Thank goodness, this year Mother Nature played nice and gave us a lengthy fall!

I wanted to make a sweet little flower bracelet inspired by the fall colors, so I used 3 different colored crystals in this project but you could use a different color for each flower or use the same color for the whole thing. As in nature, I wanted to add some shading dimension thus the 3 different colors.
Once you're wire wrapping the flowers, you might as well make a few extra for matching earrings. Like potato chips, it's hard to stop wire wrapping!

Creatively,
Kristal
