We stand at the gates of autumn. There are more browns and dark oranges in the garden. Spiders and wasps. Honey and apples.
Here's a brooch born of that sort of mood. It's rusty brown with some paler colour showing through and smocked in a dense wavy pattern in mellow, autumn colours with added beads. Some are velvety dark amber and a few sparkle in gold as they catch the light.
In the shop on Thursday.
