Wire jewelry inspiration

I was inspired to make this necklace of falling leaves and "grapes" as I live close to fields of wine and raisin vineyards. I named this necklace "Abundance" because there are abundant clusters of grapes hanging from the vines. This necklace took me 40 hours to wrap 28 gauge gold filled wire around a thicker "vine" of gold filled wire.  I then attached each branch together and added in the 2mm turquoise beads to represent the grapes. This is a asymmetrical necklace because vines hang naturally and not symmetrical.
