Fall-infused Wire Jewelry
Fall is when the leaves come down and the kids return to school and our lives shift from leisure trips and backyard get-togethers to more indoor activities. This is also the time of year when we take more interest in enhancing our careers and our hobbies. On the topic of wire jewelry a new season is afoot and inspiration for creating new jewelry pieces has arrived. How will you take advantage of the season?
We thought that we’d share some of our ideas with you here at Wire-Sculpture.com where we offer all of the jewelry making supplies, information and support that you need for your jewelry-making business or hobby.
We love the changing seasons because of the influence color has on it; moving in the fall to auburn shades, brown and gold and even black accents get pulled in surrounding Halloween. Leaf shapes and harvest themes full of gourds and pumpkins and baskets of fruit, can each be a great influence for inspiring new pieces. And it’s not too early to start planning holiday pieces either.
Texture is another element in wire jewelry design and fall brings to us a wide array of effect to capture in the art form. For example, while we often think of fall as a time that presents a more course, aged appearance, influenced by falling leaves, it is actually preceded by the ripening of fruits and vegetables with their plumpness and burgeoning nature inviting wire jewelry makers to infuse abundance concepts into their pieces.
To apply the colors, textures and general nature of fall in your wire jewelry creations, take a walk in the woods, ride a bike down a lane, watch the geese fly south and take notes about the reflections you gather while doing these things. Then consider the materials that express these reflections – what type of wire or gems or beads will you select that will bring to life the essence of these fall influences? What size and shape will contribute to the overall piece considering it being the fullest, roundest season?
