Autumn Beauties - Artisan Handmade



"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower." — Albert Camus


I don’t know about you, but autumn is my favorite time of the year, although it’s somewhat bittersweet since winter follows.  It’s a time where the temperatures (at least here in the Desert Southwest) are moderating and thankfully, the gates of the blast furnace of Hell for this extreme heat summer have closed.  It’s a time for rethinking and replacing plants that didn’t make it through this summer.  Many people start fall gardens and farmers bring in their harvest.  Fall is part of that ongoing cycle of loss, rest, regeneration and, ultimately, regrowth.  The Autumn Equinox is a balance between light and dark, a balance between the season that happens again in the spring.  And who doesn’t love the trees and some shrubs with their gorgeous leaf displays as they prepare for their winter sleep.   


To celebrate the arrival of autumn, I asked artisan friends to share two fall colored or themed handmade creations. This blog, Autumn Beauties, showcases the items shared: a wide range of jewelry, crochet, knitted and handwoven work, polymer clay beads, notecards and throw pillows.  Please browse the various items, and, if something catches your eye, be sure to click on either the photo or the description below the photos for more information.  And above all ENJOY!
