October Creations & Weekends

October’s *Indian summer is fading and November is just around the corner. It gets dark around 6 pm now and after the daylight saving ends the sun is gone around 5. The dark season is arriving...!  I used to like the hot weather but as I age I’m becoming to appreciate the cooler weather. A lot have happened this month. Good news, not so good news, heartwarming events... That aside, I’m hoping to create fall/winter inspired jewelry pieces. Not sure if my production will speed up as I get more skilled but I spend hours and hours completing each piece. I’d like to showcase more in my Etsy shop but it’s so hard to build up the inventory! So, here are some stuff I recently made. Some were happily sent to their new homes. Happy Halloween ðŸŽƒ

*I didn’t know what “Indian summer” is translated in Japanese until my dad told me the other day. It is “koharubiyori 小春日和” which means a warm spring like sunny day. Well, it’s a little different from Californian version of Indian summer, isn’t it? It is so brutally hot like we are back to mid summer! 

10月のインディアンサマー*が去って行き、11月が近づいてきました。6時には暗くなり始め、サマータイムが終わって時間が1時間早まると5時には日が沈んでしまう日々の訪れ。どんより暗ーい季節の到来。とはいえ、年齢を重ねるにつれ、暑いよりもひんやり涼しい方がよくなってきたような…。今月は色々ありました。いいことだったりあまり良くないことだったり。じんわりと心温まることだったり。そんな中、秋冬のジュエリー制作に励んでおります。もっと経験を積めばもっと能率よくスピーディになるのかどうか、、、ひとつひとつ時間がかかりすぎて、なかなかEtsyへの出品数も限られてしまってます。。というわけで、こちら、最近の作品たち。晴れて旅立って行ったものも含みます。ハッピーハロウィ~ン ðŸŽƒ

*「インディアンサマー」の訳、小春日和だったとは。先日父に教わるまで知りませんでした。ほかの州は違うのかもだけど、カリフォルニアのインディアンサマーは真夏に逆戻りしたような猛暑なのでいまいちしっくりこず。(おかげでまたもバテてしまったのでした… )

“Tragedies do happen. We can discover the reason, blame others, imagine how different our lives would be had they not occurred. But none of that is important: they did occur, and so be it. From there onward we must put aside the fear that they awoke in us and begin to rebuild.” – Paulo Coelho
