The seasons are changing again. It's not quite fall-ish here yet but give it a week or two and all my favorites of the season will return. I love symbols of change in my jewelry. As I've gone through the season of my life transitions from raising children to see them grow into young women and soon they will be leaving home, I found myself needing to celebrate that life doesn't stand still and the changes are part of the process and should be embraced. 

My favorite song is Landslide by Fleetwood Mac. It rings more true every year.

"Can I handle the seasons of my life?
Oh oh I don't know, oh I don't know
Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older I'm getting older too
Yes I'm getting older too...

 So I sneak leaves into my jewelry, and butterflies and flowers that fade. 

Here I paired pewter leaves by Green Girl Studios with lampwork glass by Julie Miller, a birch bark Humblebeads, sari silk and ceramic rounds from White Clover Kiln. Steel wire and brass findings unify the collection.

Fall is two worlds, one exploding with color, the other stark branches against grey skies. This one is the explosion of color, where every leaf turns into a bloom.

 I started with enamel leaves from Gardanne and paired them up with dotty glass beads, Humblebeads disks and a tiny Czech glass.

And a little sweet melancholy for your Friday afternoon:


  1. Gorgeous earrings from great components!

  2. These earrings look gorgeous! I love the color combo!

    Greetings, Sofie

  3. Love the earrings, wonderful combination of beads. Love fall. Love the song.

  4. Love these more than I can even express. And I love the song!

  5. First of all, I love your website due to my love of all things gold and slightly cultural. The jewelries I see here are basically the non-typical teenager rings I see on instagram accounts all the time, which is why I love it. Thank you for posting and sharing all your wonderful styles and contents, which has been very helpful on many occasions where I needed an inspirational style for.

    It would be really great if you were to check out my blog and my recent post on one of my favorite gemstone product that I have recently discovered through instagram. I think this is one of the most unique yet undermined styles of jewelry products out there that deserves more attention than they have. I am not the creator of the brand nor working for them, I genuinely adore their style which reflects my own personal style as well, thus I think it’s crucial to share them.

    Here is a link of my post if you would like to check it out :)

    All the best and have a great day :)

    I just had to share
