This is the first fall piece I made this year. I found these beautiful Tibetan silver leaf shapes and decided to use it as my focal piece. It was still not quite fall so I used two shades of green and some light brown beads to show the beginnings of fall. The leaves are still green, but you can see the edges start turning. So this is more of an early Autumn necklace.
This second piece was reminiscent of the Autumn moon. The harvest moon seems to be bigger and brighter than other full moons. The warm color of the moon is caused by light passing through the atmosphere. It seems to be bigger because it hangs lower in the sky at the Autumnal equinox and this also causes it to appear to be anywhere from an orange-yellow to a reddish color.
For this necklace I used large black beads with almost matte mauve beads. The mauve is a warm color and I generally associate it with fall. You may see some leaves with this color once they turn.
you can see the mauve leaves mixed in among the reds and oranges and yellows.
For this piece I used more brownish color and just a little green. A more thorough turning of the leaves.
Now this piece has no green. It is fully Autumn. Reminds me of hot chocolate on a cool Autumn evening. The warm colors of the two shades of brown and the brightness of the copper really say that this is Autumn.
The latest piece in my fall collection look almost like berries. The deep red, mauve and olive green give a late Autumn feeling to this piece. I used copper findings to really give this necklace a warm glow. I think this is my favorite piece for my Autumn collection.
Tomorrow is October and you know what that means....Halloween is just around the corner.....
