Just the other day, I noticed....

signs of FALL! It's been getting dark earlier and the nights have been cooler. I also noticed a few red colored leaves on a few trees! I'm ready to buy some mums and get rid of my plants that are no longer looking so healthy from this long, hot summer! Back to school starts next week, football season is coming soon too (Go PSU!!!), and yes, the colors are changing. Here's a necklace I came up with to wear while the seasons are changing:

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn

I love the look of turquoise for the Fall months, but it also reminds me very much of Summer. The blue green color reminds me of sitting at the beach looking at the peaceful calm of the ocean. This first necklace is my interpretation of the ocean and saying goodbye to the Summer months.

I love the color orange for the Fall. It reminds me of the changing colors of the leaves. These earrings remind me of how seasons change and life changes along with it.

All of my jewelry is creating using Sterling Silver chains and wires.
Thanks for taking a look!

Thinking about Indian Summer

I don't know about you but as a mom of two boys who are constantly at each other all summer long, I am surely ready for school to start up again. My youngest is in the midst of potty training too. He looks so innocent, but he's been giving me quite a run for my money with the bodily functions all over the house. I'm pretty much going insane around these parts...ask any of my friends! Look at this innocent little face, but he's quite the handful:

I'm also in the process (amidst my chaos of shampooing rugs and cleaning up poop) of creating some really fun jewelry for Indian Summer (which if you aren't from around these parts is when it's Fall but feels like's a short burst of heat to remind us of all the fun we had in the summer months). Here's a sneak piece of an item I created yesterday using a really great leaf focal pendant and paired with orange jade nuggets and yellow round jade.

I'm always interested in hearing from people about what they think about these pieces I create.
