'october's poplars are flaming torches lighting the way to winter.'
~ nova blair
'autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains,
a torch flung to the trees.'

every one has a strength, something they do exceptionally well - i really feel that erin at every heart crafts has the market on leaves... it took me so long to get one because i just could not decide which color i wanted to work with... & when it arrived i was instantly overcome with a feeling of needing to place berries near to it... deep red/oranges... evocative of the season... and so i did... 'autumn's fire' features berries of lampwork glass, carnelian, ceramic and pearl... soldered rings in copper and sterling are connected with forged & paddled double ended sterling bars... vintaj brass chain with its warm brown color is paired with a length of lavic & picture jasper beads (there are so many jasper names)...
'delicious autumn! my very soul is wedded to it,
and if i were a bird i would fly about the earth seeking
the successive autumns.'

a small antiqued bird charm nestles in amongst the cluster...
hope the season is beginning to show itself in your part of the world!
