Color Inspiration - Autumn Hues
by Debbie Blair
There's nothing quite like getting outdoors on a warm autumn day to awaken the senses. The air seems fresh and crisp, the sky bluer. The skin soaks up the sun's warmth, as leaves crunch underfoot.

And sometimes it's as if we are seeing colors for the very first time. The lush greens of summer have transformed the landscape into vivid hues of citrusy yellows, tangerine oranges, and crimson reds. Chestnut, cinnamon, and copper dot the ground. Cloudless skies mimic azure seas. And we hold tight to nature's autumnal color palette, until the days turn to the muted landscape of winter.
Sometimes I think my daughter loves fall more than Christmas and her birthday combined. I wanted to make her a necklace with all the colors of fall. I combined a chartreuse beaded chain with a hand-stamped copper pendant, and then added various charms and dangles in red, blue, and yellow-orange for a special personalized piece of jewelry that she can wear as she grows into her pre-teen and teen years.
