I took part in AJE:s challenge of autumn hosting by Caroline Dewison from Blueberribeads. This challenge is so for me. I´m living "almost in the middle of the forest". Love the idea of trees as inspiration. I have many pendants and beads of this theme, and I was happy I was another lucky winner of one beautiful bead made by Caroline. It´s made from buff stoneware clay and decorated with underglazes and a china painted tree motif. Thank you Caroline for the inspiring bead and challenge! Here is the bead photographed in the daylight.
It´s dark now. I´m sorry of the bad picture taking in lamp light. I´ll take more pictures next afternoon. I´ll hope it will not rain the whole day.
Ps. Look also at the previous posting. I made the necklace in August without knowing of the becoming theme. The cute ceramic pine pendant is made by Lesley Watt. It remains me of the pine forest surrounding our house. The beads are snakeskin jasper, the chain is copper. Lesley is also one of the excelent participant of AJE team. So maybe this is also suitble for this challenge.
Ps.Ps. It´s still raining and too late when I tried to took some other photos. Thanks for doing everything last night. The result is almost the same:
Here you can see how long the autumn is today in our front yard. Not the best day taking pictures in the rain.
