Now that it's fall, with the leaves changing and crunchy underfoot, the grass morphing from brilliant shades of green to hay-bale yellow, I'm itching to go shopping.
The change in seasons makes me want to buy materials in different color palettes. I make jewelry, and inspiration strikes at the oddest moments... so it's good to have some beads, stones and silver pieces to work with when an idea pops into my head.
In October, all those summery caribbean blues and grassy spring greens and sunflower yellows give way to colors you'd see in tweeds and corduroys - espresso, cocoa, aubergine. (Now I'm hungry, too!)
Where do you look for inspiration?
