Indian summer is a name given to a period of sunny, warm
weather in autumn, not long before winter. Usually occurring
after the first frost, Indian summer can be in September, October,
or early November in the northern hemisphere, and March,
April, or early May in the Southern hemisphere. It can persist
for a few days or extend to a week or more.
I hope I'm mistaken about it being our Indian Summer here! But we
did have a frost, and now its warming up again.
I made this necklace and entered it in the Art Bead Scene October
Challenge. The theme: Dark and Stormy Night. It's not too dark
looking, but it covers the cool autumn feeling and the shorter
days and darker nights.
Focal bead form Humblebeads,
disk bead from Blue Seraphim,
Vintaj Natural Brass filigree,
seed beads from Osiris Beads.
Some wood, amazonite, and green garnet squares.
Speaking of Humblebeads, I got a package in the mail with some
of her new beads. She put in a suprise for me. If you haven't looked
at her stuff lately I can tell you that you are missing out on some
great things! Her Gustav Klimt's Kiss beads are as great in person
as they look in her shop. I've lots of ideas rolling round my head
