Fall is my favorite time to make jewelry. Colors are warm and melancholy and materials are sensual and full of texture. Fall colors are dramatic, never shy, and colors are muted. Mustard, cranberry, teal, burnt orange, and cinammon are great choices. Ethnicity is also embraced. I seem to pick a different country every year to base at least ten of my pieces on and this year I think the country is China. I made dozens of Chinese knotted bracelets and necklaces and have several pieces made with Chinese carved cinnabar. Check out my website!
