Beautiful Fall Colors
Autumn is such a beautiful time of year. I love the cooling day, chilly mornings and changing color of the trees and grasses. It's like Mother Nature washes everything in brilliant sunshine before going on holiday for the winter--going out in a blaze of glory. Fall color takes a little longer to get here in Southern California--it seems to come in fits and starts, wrestling with summer in a fight that inevitably will arrive, despite the protestations. Last Spring I bought some gorgeous lampwork beads from artist Carey OHalloran--the colors are my perfect ode to fall, so they inspired me to put them into two beautiful necklaces a few weeks ago...which one do you prefer--or would you wear them together--layered for a dramatic song of autumn.
