Fall is by far my favorite season!  I love the crisp cool breeze, days still warm enough for shorts, the colors, the smells, everything about it is wonderful.  So I was really excited to find that the theme for the Art Beads designers was.....Fall!!!  Once again I got to pick some great items from ArtBeads that reminded me of fall.  I went for these great brass flower pendants, since they reminded me sooo much of mums.  Mums- the last flowers before winter, the last pop of color before the greys and whites come.  I also found a great little brass chain that was made of tiny leaves, that just screams fall.  I needed one more brass chain, and found this one I liked.  So I had all my brass components in front of me, and used some pearls for pops of color, the way mums are in a dying Fall garden.  I think they all came together quite well.  I really love the brass components.  I work almost entirely in silver, and it was such a nice change.  I am happy with my fall necklace, and once again, had fun trying components that I normally wouldn't use.  I suppose stepping outside my box is good now and again!!!

  1. The blog you have posted has been very useful to me. It has provided me with all essential details about the Gemstone Beads that are available of late.

  2. Beautiful necklace. I love the brass components and the pearls add a lovely touch and soften the metal.
