Finally Fall!

It seems that Fall has settled in this week. The familiar nip in the air, the trees starting to turn, leaves flying. I love it all - I am so glad it is finally upon us. Naturally, I've been seeing a lot of Fall-themed jewelry and beads of late. I thought I'd share a few that caught my eye...

Starting with components and beads, the first image that caught my eye was this photo posted on Facebook by Shannon LeVart of Missficklemedia, of her stunning fold-formed and patinated leaves:

Next, I saw that Heather Powers of Humblebeads posted a snapshot of some of her fall beads. I went to her shop to explore and found more. I love her work!

When I asked my blog colleagues for their own Fall offerings, Lesley Watt of Thea Elements produced these lovely bronze acorns and pine cones. I love the rustic craggy texture of these!

Diana P. of Suburban Girl Beads makes awesome leaf and nature impression beads and connectors, including this one:

And I like the richly enameled leaves that Susan Kennedy of SueBeads makes, like this one:

As for jewelry, here are some lovely offerings...

This pendant is from Linda Landig of Linda Landig Jewelry. I like the playful design with berry-like beads accompanying Erin Siegel's fall leaf pendant.

I couldn't help but fall in love with this Lorelei Eurto piece featuring a black raven - one of my favorite birds! The raven bead is by Diane Hawkey.

Kristi Bowman made these yummy Fall Earrings:

And here's a pretty Fall necklace with an owl (another bird that I love!), by Martha Thomas of Martha's Ruby Acorn:

And finally, on a more mixed-media note, I love this sweet little hand woven purse embellished with beads, by Marlene Kazor Quigley of MarkaZo.

Thank you for taking this visual tour with me. I am SO ready for Fall - my favorite time of year!
