Show Me Sunday

This week, I am showing off my own work a little bit!  Last week I asked to see harvest themed beads, so I figured I would show some of my own.  I have been making these tiny Snack Charms out of porcelain for many years, in Veggie and Fruit designs (on sale now on my website!)  They make adorable earrings on their own, or bunch all the different styles together for a fun bracelet or necklace salad!
Show Me More Harvest Beads! 
For November, we want to showcase beads, pendants, and components that remind us of the autumn harvest.  Let's see a cornucopia of fall colors, autumnal fruits and veggies and leaves, and a buffet of yummy visual treats to celebrate the change of season. Post your links in the comments here and I will select some of your ideas you leave on this post to highlight in another Show Me Sunday post. 
Here is what some of our beady friends have to show off this week:

I love leaves and so many of my beads and pendants are inspired by nature. Here are a few from my etsy shop:
