Autumn Inspired Art Beads

I'm so in love with autumn it hurts. I can't get enough of the colors here in Michigan - my first fall season in 10 years!  Each trip outside I feel like I have to have my camera ready to snatch those fleeting bursts of color.  The textures and shapes of foliage and trees make me giddy!

I've pulled out my ravens, owls, oak leaves, pine cones, acorns and tree beads - I'm chasing after the season in beads!

I see I'm not alone in my autumnal inspiration! Here are my picks of artist created beads inspired by the hues and symbols of the season.

October by Robert Frost

O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
Tomorrow's wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.

The crows above the forest call;
Tomorrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow.

Make the day seem to us less brief.
Hearts not averse to being beguiled,
Beguile us in the way you know...
