Fall Into Color

Rich and luscious, soft and smokey I am so excited about the colors that are being shown for the fall and winter season. Normally I don't pay a lot of attention to the current trend but I really love the color combination and overall fashion feel that I'm seeing in the latest magazines and catalogs.

So with these colors in mind I've begun creating new pieces for the fall and holiday season.

This bangle features delightful artisan lampwork beads in shades of plum with coral accents. I've added dangles of amethyst, chalcedony and a sweet little sterling silver flower to echo the pattern in the focal bead. I'm sorry you can't see the little flower in this photo. It's next to the chalcedony nugget.

I fell in love with these beads the moment I saw them. They have such subtle depth of color and pattern, so interesting to look at. I've combined them with sterling silver and ceramic beads to make this one-of-a-kind bangle.

I don't know what it is about Fall, maybe it's the whole 'back to school' phenomenon, but I'm feeling particularly fresh with new inspiration.
