The background for this shot came to me courtesy of Billy and his first try using our new chainsaw. Good news is he still has all of his digits, and I have a cool new photo prop. I love the cracks in it and while the round is a little thicker on one side I actually like it even more because of it. It is a perfect backdrop, I think, for fall jewelry designs. The disk beads are a little darker orange (think Jolly Rancher), but the natural light on our deck brought out the tangerine!
In our part of Nevada Fall is creeping slowly upon us. The evenings are a bit cooler, the days seem to be shorter at a fast pace, and the wildlife are busy preparing for the colder months. However, with the majority of trees surrounding us being assorted pine trees, I find I miss the fall display of leaves changing from green, to yellow, orange, and red. The leaf in my photo is actually a dried leaf I brought with us when we moved and this leaf is my absolute favorite of all times:
Until we get a variety of trees planted at our house, I will have to satisfy myself with cheery autumn colors in my jewelry. I plan to wear a pair like the one pictured on top with a warm pair of Uggs, a soft and slightly worn pair of my favorite denims, a crisp white cotton shirt, and a cozy warm sweater while I eat a bowl of my favorite fall soup.
If you would like a pair yourself, you can find them in the online store, or if you would rather make yourself a pair you can find everything you need to make them there as well. I also have another design that I am working on for Fall or Halloween and will hopefully have a picture in a day or so.
