Fall is in the Air at Catju Designs

Here in Maryland, fall is on its way. It is dark longer in the mornings, the air is crisp, and the leaves on the trees are turning. Although I am happy that the humidity has gone, I am not looking forward to the winter weather coming in the next few months. Where has the year gone?

So with the change in weather, the oranges, tans, and browns make their way to my designs. This set is made from mother of pearl shell beads, interspersed with various crystal and glass beads. There are also a couple of rhinestone studded beads with an iridescent flash. The matching earrings have a large Swarovski crystal bicone and leverback earwires.

Next up for designing are some pumpkin colored beads, along with something delightful from the new Swarovski colors. Stay tuned!
