Autumn is the natural bridge between summer and winter. It acts as an organic intermediary, gently transitioning the emboldened spirit of summer - full of high heat and early blooms - into something softer, quieter - complete with cooler temperatures and a mature harvest. And once Autumn has taken its turn, it gracefully ushers in winter - the quietest and sleepiest of all the seasons.
Because of the central role that autumn plays for these two differing seasons, it’s only appropriate that it embody some combination of the two! For me, that embodiment is best identified through color and, subsequently, style.
While autumn may conjure visions of burnt orange and deep yellow for some, I find that mossy greens and wintry blues best represent the larger role autumn plays as earth’s seasonal liaison.
As a jewelry artist, I can’t help but think of colors in terms of the gemstones that feature them! Two of my favorites are Labradorite and Navy Blue Quartz.
Below, you’ll find a few festive ensembles fit for all types of occasions and inspired by autumn and Her pleasing palette.
