Fall is Falling....and More Treasuries

Although my main focus the past few weeks has been new cuffs and bracelets, at another end of my studio, new necklaces are beginning to take shape. I'm really excited by multiple, cascading layers, especially on longer necklaces. This early piece was an effort to see what I could do with these really unusual, and very textural, bronze brown keishi pearls. These little pearls are so organic that I really will have to experiment a little more to feel like I've "nailed it." But I did shoot this piece because it also includes a new approach to "chains" I've been trying, that brings a subtle mix of different colored silk fibers together to echo the color of the pearls or stones. Some of these will tie in order to adjust the front length, and others just slip over the head.

A couple more new seasonal treasuries showed up today. "Like a Rollin' Stone" was curated by ZiBagz who has her shop here with all kinds of cool sewn constructions like bags, pouches and wristlets.


"Glowing Fall Colors" was curated by Gencards who is introducing her newest little card shop here. Momgen has another shop offering clear bags and other supplies that has been very successful on Etsy for quite awhile.

I love the colors, smells and things particular to this time of year and I enjoy how some of the new treasuries are collections of how different artists are responding to this season.

And do consider finding some new blogs through the Blog Hop link here-Happy Friday everyone!
