Falling Into Autumn
“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.”
In California, the shift from Summer to Fall is subtle, but distinct. The night air grows slightly crisper. The green leaves begin their gradual change to yellows, oranges, and reds; and as always our golden hills stay golden.
Of course, for me, it’s not nature’s changes that make the seasons feel different-it’s back to school season! Now that my younger daughter has started kindergarten, I’m the proud recipient of two sets of stories, completed assignments, and lovely art projects.
It was this beautiful art that inspired my latest project-pendants that are made by hand-engraved etching on 18k gold.
When my older daughter came home with this picture, I immediately knew I wanted to capture this once-in-a-lifetime moment–the moment my older daughter helped her sister as she entered into a “big girl” classroom for the first time. Both the picture she drew and the pendant capture that sweet love between sisters. I am so excited to start a personalized line of these pendants so that other parents turn their child’s artwork into can make a treasured memory as well! We all know how fast these moments slip by in the endlessly flowing stream of our busy lives. I’m so glad to have this sweet memory preserved as I watch my girls grow up.
Please contact me to find out how you can submit your own child’s art and have it turned into a timeless memory.
I think the back-to-school vibe is contagious-there’s something that feels new and fresh about the Fall. I can’t wait to dive in and see what inspiration this season holds for me!
Warmest Regards, Ashley
