It's fall and you can hear the sound of acorns regularly dropping from the many oak trees around the house. Blue Jays battle for their share of the crop, bringing back memories of the sounds of my childhood and my grandparent's home. Oh how I love the wonderful sights, sounds, and scents of this season!

These lovely little agate earrings reminded me so much of acorns, they were begging to be called that! With their rich brown color, round shape with a swirl on the bottom, and especially that fancy bead cap, what could be a more fitting name! The agate beads are 8mm, topped with a Celtic copper bead cap all on a copper swirl headpin. The Acorn earrings are 1-1/2" in length, the 3/4" dangle hangs from a handmade round earwire.

The focal point of this necklace is a beautiful 15mm round agate bead in a deep, rich red-brown that also reminds me of acorns! There are also touches of mauve, and cream it's gorgeous stone! Add in a fancy filigree bead cap, and a sweet little swirl on the bottom, to complete the look! The agate pendant is 1-1/4" in length and is suspended on a double chocolate brown leather necklace with coordinating copper findings! Total length of the necklace is 16-1/2 inches.
