Ozark Autumn

My muse:  Photo 1 – Red Leaves

Recently I decided I wanted to learn how to make ear cuffs. I understood the basic concept but wanted to see how the cuffs were formed. I spent some time on line looking information and found several sources that answered most of my questions. After experimenting with ideas from the various tutorials and incorporating my own ideas I finally came up with a design I really like.

copper earcuff with red beads

A graceful line

I grew up in the Ozark mountains of southern Missouri on the edge of the Mark Twain National forest. This is a hard wood forest where nature puts on a colorful display every autumn. Locally it is referred to as the Flaming Fall Review. The color in the photo of Red Leaves reminded me of autumn in the Ozarks.

When I first saw the photo Red Leaves I was struck by the elegant line of the branch and the over all simplicity of the picture. This was my inspiration for the Ozark Autumn ear cuff.
