Autumn is definitely here!

Image

I went on a brief walk today, not far, just outside my door and along the road a little way, in search of a few leaves to work with. The sun was shining so I didn’t bother with a coat, but I hadn’t got very far before I wished I had!

Anyway I walked far enough to gather a selection of leaves – some hawthorn, silver birch and ash (complete with its keys) – which I’ve already started work with to create some new jewellery pieces. There will be some pendants and a couple of pairs of earrings too I think.

I also started work on some other new ideas – I can’t wait for the first stage of the clay to dry out so I can crack on! I just want to see how they turn out.

I love autumn – the colours of the turning leaves are inspiring and that lovely smell in the air puts a spring in my step. But sadly it means that the leaves will start to fall too – which in turn means no more leaves for my jewellery for a while! What will I do?!? Looking around today I noticed that the oak is still holding on to its leaves well whilst the silver birch is loosing them very fast indeed. If you’re after a piece of jewellery made from leaves at all – now is the time to speak up. At least I’ll still be able to use holly and ivy though:

But then comes the spring and we can start all over again! But now I’m just wishing the time away xxx

If you go down to the woods today……

Today with the sun shining we set off for the deep dark woods. After a picnic on a convenient log under a flowering rowan tree came a lovely walk through the trees of the Forest of Dean.

The bluebells were ringing all around us and a little friend flew over to sing his hello – he sat so close for such a long time!

These photos really don’t do it justice. What a lovely day full of inspiration.
