Jewel Tones

Today was a day of overwhelmingly lovely color in Petaluma, with the trees bearing the most spectacular leaves I've seen in nearly seven years: Los Angeles has like, three trees that change color. In the whole city. Three.

I took a walk and captured some of the loveliness for this little digital diary and also had the time to finish some pieces I've been in the process of making:

A stunning, deep deep red rhodolite garnet crescent moon necklace on a hefty and handsome chain. The stone looks deceptively black here: it has a nearly purple red tone and tons of luminous angles.

A simply set piece of  phosphositerite, a stone of such true and lovely purple that it warms the heart and causes frequent smiles.
Nature created this perfection!
Size 6.5.




Viva Petaluma, viva fall and the ability to experience it again far from the east coast.
