Happy Autumn Equinox!

I am a big fan of changing seasons...those transitional days when you know the upcoming one is on the brink of appearing, but not quite!  I would be hard-pressed to choose a favorite...but I guess it would be between Spring and Autumn.  I have a love/hate relationship with summer and winter :)
Autumn Bliss - enameled filigree, agate, rhyolite, freshwater pearls, serpentine and copper
There is something that happens deep in my gut during Autumn, especially in the very early evening. I love walking out in my yard after dark in the throes of Fall...looking up into the dark sky at the constellations that are above my house. It is comforting to look up at Orion, seemingly hovering protectively over us. The impending color changes in foliage, the rich, musky smells of drying leaves and the earth as summer annuals wither and compost - all these things providing strong sense memories of growing up in the country, playing in the yard after dark, not daring to venture outside the circle of light coming from the house, looking up at a sky so filled with diamonds you could almost reach out and touch them.


  1. I think autumn is my favorite time of year. Even though winter comes right after! Your bracelet is luscious as usual!--perfect little collection of elements. Love that sort of herringbone effect wrap on that one bead. The enamel filigree adds a nice airy touch. I'm always so wowed by your work!

  2. I have to say I'm not fond of auumn and winter, but I love your bracelet!

  3. The bracelet is gorgeous and screams autumn.

    In the small farm town community, I live in, fall is simply gorgeous, as you stated. The sounds of the grain trucks running up and down the roads for the crops harvest, every year, still makes my heart go pitter-pat. Their is something about the beauty of autumn that warms the heart and mind.

    I really enjoyed your post.

  4. I adore the fall and winter, and I LOVE your bracelet!

  5. What a lovely bracelet! I love the changes of the seasons as well but fall is my favorite!

  6. Its lovely...and I LOVE LOVE LOVE your clasp!!

  7. Melissa,
    what a beautiful bracelet and a beautiful post too! Your words are really moving. I can really visualize what you described...being outside behind your house playing as it got dark. You have a writer inside of you!
