Woodland Links and Coppery Chain

Here are some of those new woodland inspired links I was talking about recently.  I also have some toggles and larger pendants in this style, with the woodgrain and the little leaves.  I used these to test colors.  I like both colors for the woodgrain but am not sure about the greens.  Seems most of the greens ran a little dark and muddy this time around, which doesn't always happen, but it does sometimes, and that is something to keep in mind when trying to create a stock product.  The bright green sure does make nice contrast to both of the wood colors, but I worry about the halo effect.  I like it a lot on these pieces, but it might overwhelm others.  It's my favorite of the green tones, though, so I think I will continue testing it.  I am eager to deign with one or two of these.  I got some awesome antique copper plated chain from Fusion Beads that I am excited to use with these!
