This is a fleeting gift of the seasons, poignant for its brief beauty, but I take immense inspiration from it all the same. It may account for the prominence of glowing golds in my designs – including my jewelry collection – and the appeal of these colors as the holidays approach.
Reflective warm metallics feel especially appropriate this time of year. They celebrate the moments we will spend with friends and family, and they recall the beauty of a foregone season.
What we can’t cling to in nature we can conjure in other ways: golden textiles and accents, candlelight, champagne, wood burning fires, the star atop a Christmas tree, the glimmer of a menorah.
