Inspiration Wednesday - Autumn Swirl

autumn swirl
Design-Seeds Autumn Swirl
I can't get the sound of the wind out of my head. I am hoping that you are safe, warm and dry in the wake of such a horrible and devastating storm. I couldn't have known 2 weeks ago when I chose this photo what we were going to be presented with these last few days.

I got the time to make this necklace. I really like how it turned out. It is fun, flirty. I love the movement, it is really comfy and lightweight. The blues and creams make it easy to put on with almost any outfit where jeans are involved.
Lots of wire wrapping and chain

The ceramic beads are from Gaea. The dangles at the side aren't just pretty they are also an extender for the necklace so the wearer can choose their most comfortable length.

the button is from Artisan Clay, the etched copper I made.

Here is the theme for TWO weeks:
