I love Autumn! Daylight now has a different glow with the sun lower in the sky. The prairie is awash with brilliant shades of yellow as goldenrod, native sunflower, and black-eyed Susan are in full bloom. Trees are sporting leaves in shades of gold and crimson. The dog days of summer have now become pleasantly warm followed by refreshingly cool nights. I’ve packed away my lightweight frocks and sandals and traded them for cozy sweaters, scarves, and boots. With the change of season I’ve been inspired to create several new pieces of jewelry. The antique-finished “Nature Talisman Necklace” shown here consists of a 10″ long handmade Sterling silver chain suspended from a stamp-textured silver neckring. An antler tip, natural pearl, faux tourmaline resin crystal, and two fine-silver metal clay seed pods Talisman charms dangle from the chain. I love wearing it against my neutral-toned sweaters!
