(... IS NOTHING MORE THAN A SUMMER'S WAVE GOODBYE
My assistant, Kristen, told me in August that autumn had begun. Her neighbor's weeping willow tree had already turned yellow and dropped all of its leaves. I had trouble with the idea that the weeping willow knew (well before the weather turned chilly) that it was time to buckle in for winter. But here we are.
If I have to think of fall, the first thing that comes to mind are leaves, leaves, and more leaves. (My yard is comprised of trees...lots and lots of trees, which mean an annual onslaught of falling leaves.) So, leaves is what we shall focus on this month.
I went searching through my photo archives and found quite a few pieces that fit just this subject. I also found a few unwrapped pieces that remind me of leaves that I decided to wrap. I love how the monthly topic inspires new pieces all the time.
These come from autumns past... This first grouping have all found homes.
Harkening back to my lack of inspiration several months back, I went "shopping" in my own studio and found so much to work with. So here we go! Let's start with pretty things for the ears.
I can't just stop at the ears. I also found some beautiful cabochons to adorn the neck.
I do have other stones that are longing to be created into someone's perfect piece of custom jewelry. I'll be having more time in the studio once the weather actually starts getting cold; I would welcome your special requests.
Until next month!
