October Fest Reveal!

I Love Autumn - it is my favorite season.  So, when the lovely Rita of Toltec Jewels decided to hold a second annual October Fest, I had to get on board.  I wanted to show some pretty Autumn photos that I had taken, but my photos are not the best quality.  So - I picked out some free online photos that best describe how Autumn "feels" to me. 

The last photo was my inspiration for my jewelry.  The picture most closely resembles Autumn in Michigan (my neck of the woods).   I made a necklace, bracelet and earrings set using the blue color of an Autumn sky on a sunny day, and the gold color of vibrant leaves.   

This photo was my jewelry inspiration:
Autumn in Michigan

 Here is my Necklace, Bracelet and Earrings Set:

Please check out all the wonderful Autumn offerings from all the participants:

    Thank you for the inspiring photos; now that we live so far south, I really miss the fall colors.

  7. The blue you choose so perfectly reflects the bright blue autumn sky. I love the way blue sets off yellow, orange and red. Beautiful.

  14. What a beautiful set Lisa. It could cover half the year's seasons as I saw beach and sand, but I live on an island so I see beach and sand everywhere.

  15. Oh very pretty Lisa, the blue in the pearls and pendant are gorgeous and look so much like the blue sky of fall.

  16. Lisa, the photo selection was perfect & breath taking. It has brightened my day. Thank you.
