Autumn Joy
Here is what the artist had to say about her piece:

"While so many things make me happy (family, friends, church, art, beading and more), today I'm thinking about my favorite season: Autumn. After over a month of triple digit temperatures, the thought of Autumn with its cool morning temperatures, warm days, and vivid colors makes me so happy.
This necklace is made with lampwork beads from Lyndas Bead Dreams on ETSY, a ceramic leaf focal from Marlas Mud on ETSY, and my very first handmade chain from Stephanie Lee's Homesteader's Metalsmithing e-course."

Thanks Alice for this great entry!! Please post a comment listing where your fans can find you; blog, website or ETSY.

Keep the great entries coming folks!! Show us what makes you happy!!!!!!

Thanks again! What a wonderful way to begin the week!
