First Kiss of Autumn by ChaosFay First Kiss of Autumn by ChaosFay
Currently I'm experiencing that sudden change of the seasons. One day we're at 90+ degrees, the next it's only in the 70s. Overnight we're getting down into the 60s and 50s. It's a nice break to be sure, but it's so sudden. That crisp north wind brings the promise of desired change, more rain, and that relaxing sensation that the oppressive heat is about to leave us. The land is green, the trees aren't yet shedding their leaves, but they are showing the change of gold, yellow, and red tips on the leaves. More clouds are moving through, bringing the Autumn rains. I can feel it in my body, my spirit, and mind. So beautiful, so wonderful, and so perfect.

It leaves me breathless with its beauty. It's what inspired this piece. The white representing the spirit of change, the purity of this moment, as well as the clouds promising the Autumn rains. The large green beads are absolutely perfect for this with the paint lines on them, marking change. The gold rose beads are representative of the Autumn blooms, the flowers bursting with life at this time of year. The green glass pearls bring the two elements of the beads together. The pendant is like that of the winds, moving around with the rich crispness of the northern winds dancing around as spirits of the season.

Made using cotton cord NOT HEMP, glass pearls, acrylic rose beads, rubberized beads (velvety texture and lovely against the skin), and a pewter pendant.

Length: 16 in/40.5 cm
Width: .5 in/1.5 cm
Top of choker to bottom of pendant: 2.5 in/6.5 cm



**The book is Book 1 of the Age of Misrule trilogy**

I love this but it's too small for me. :lol:

The colors remind me of the two characters I am writing in my next book since they both use nature magic, and the pendant looks like a stylized "A" which is the first letter of the male character's name.

It seemed especially appropriate since the characters represent spring and fall and they work in harmony to try and keep things balanced.

Anyway, thought I'd share. I love checking to see what you've designed. :)

Thank you! I can make a similar piece to your size and design you desire because I have a second pendant just like this, as well as all the beads used.

Yes, I too have felt the change coming. It invigorates, it tells me that my star is rising, that soon it shall once again be my time, my season. I'm brimming with anticipation for Autumn.

As to your lovely creation, it is most pleasant. Although, I shall admit, the choice of white cord gives it a decidedly Spring aesthetic over an Autumnal one. Very lovely, none the less.

Thank you! I have a light and dark brown, but they caused the gold colors to be more washed out. They got lost with that color. The white makes the colors pop, and gives it a more uplifting feeling.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way about Autumn. Currently we're going for days in the 70s to the 90s, but overnight falling in the 50s to 60s. Much nicer now for sure.

If you don't mind my asking, where do you live? Around my neck of the US, we've been having days mostly in the mid-70s for a couple of weeks now, and as I type this, the current nighttime temperature is 55. Very lovely weather, I could do with another month and a half of it, but one never knows if September is going to be a bit toasty or not.

Council Bluffs, Iowa. We've been in the triple digits for weeks with no break, now we finally get it. It's so nice sleeping at night under a blanket instead of having the fan blowing on me and still feeling icky. I'll take cold any day. You can add more layers. :D

We've been a slight bit luckier here in South Eastern Wisconsin, but trust me, for most of the Summer, I knew your pain.

The Drought alone has been bad enough here, I hate to think how it's been for you folks a little farther south. I give you my sincere sympathies.
