Autumn Girl

September 26, 2014 , In: Beadwork, Clay, General, Inspiration, Jewelry
I am an autumn girl through and through. My birthday is even on the first day of autumn! I love autumn colors best of all, and my hair, eye and skin coloring are such that autumn colors are most flattering on me. What could be better? Designing jewelry with autumn colors, of course!

If you are in the throes of autumn designing, I have some inspiration boards for you. I gathered up some of of my favorite autumn focals and paired them with beads, chains, textiles and leather. Links to the shops are provided in the caption area beneath each picture.

    I can't tell you what a joy it was this morning to open my computer to your blog and those beautiful autumnal pieces. Fall is my favorite season as well and I love the colors and textures you put together. Your blog is such a pleasure to me and I click on every link and look at all the other sites. It makes my day! Happy belated birthday.

    Hi Linda,
    All the pallets are gorgeous! Autumn is my favorite time of the year and I was born in the Autumn month of November.

    I love autumn colors (and since I am a redhead) and wish they were available year round.
