I’ve had an overwhelming amount of positive feedback these last few weeks, and so I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your encouragement and kind words. It is hard not to be inspired when you are surrounded by so many creative people.
I must admit that I cannot wait for Fall. Every single year upon the arrival of August, I give myself full license to obsess about all things Autumn. It’s the layers of jackets and scarves, moody grey skies and crisp wind. I realize that Summer is not over, but one can dream, no? Or you could just go to the craft store.
Last week, I stumbled upon some beads that appealed to my Fall state of mind. They were so perfect that I had no choice but to buy them and whip up a bracelet. Really, I didn’t.
Those glossy, crimson discs have a geometric pattern reminiscent of foulard silk ties – the right amount of luxe menswear with a dash of folk (a fashion trend for Fall/Winter, by the way). I paired those beauties with gold-lined seed beads, medium black matte beads, and a small embroidery floss tassel. The saturated colors work for late summer, but I think this bracelet will achieve its full glory once September rolls around.
