Heart Afire for Autumn

Earrings made Sunday, November 4, 2012
These are made to complement the Heart Afire Pendant necklace
I completed at the same time.

Here's a close up of the pendant

I usually don't name my jewelry pieces, but when working with this, 
I kept thinking how the colors remind me of fire.

These are not my colors.
I cannot wear deep autumn colors without
looking drawn and pale and washed out.

Many, many years ago I was "draped"
to determine what my skin coloration was and what 
color palette I should seek when purchasing or making clothing...
especially the things that were to be directly against my skin.

I am summer.
My complexion is somewhat pale (when not kissed by the Texas sun)
and my palette are the pastels in the cool light spectrum.

But I always find myself drawn to the warmth of the spring and autumn palettes.
I cannot live with them 24/7
but I do enjoy their spark in small quantities.

I will not be wearing this set.
Hopefully a autumn or spring will come along!

The earrings are my #AEDM Entry #4

I'm in LOVE with these. Although I can't wear jewelry (it's an allergy thing), it doesn't stop me from admiring these pieces. And I adore the colors, too. Like you, they are best in small doses, but I still appreciate them.

Thanks for dropping by today. How sweet of you to stop by and leave a comment, too.

I can see that we like a lot of the same things! Your necklace and earring set are gorgeous. When I was "draped" years ago I was told I am a oranges and reds for me, either. Funny thing is my favorite color is orange! Go figure.
