Autumn Inspirations


There is something so miraculous about this time of year. The way the light is changing, somehow softer yet so vibrant. Sunsets paint the sky with colors that can’t be touched by mere words!! The hottest pinks and the most subtle lavender, inexplicable beauty that makes me stop, stare and lose track of time ….. This powerful sense that all is right and safe and being held dear. It literally leaves me breathing it all in, yet breathless at the same moment! We are ¬†blessed and so should be care takers of these gifts. My heart is truly grateful.

I have had some time to work in my studio and create new jewelry. This year has really grown for my business and I am always so thankful and stunned by it! Here are a few new pieces.

About turtlemoondesigns

Sky watcher, dreamer, seeker, stone hoarder.... Finding a love and growing passion for metalsmithing happened as a later in life discovery. I taught preschool for 23 years, but started doing metal work as a hobby about 13 years ago. All I can say is that I get lost and found in it. Three years ago I "retired" from teaching, I'm way too young for that! Now I follow my muse, and feel more filled up in my heart and soul than I could have ever imagined, but I do miss those sweet little faces too!! What a truly amazing thing this has become, my life! Please feel free to contact me with questions or for custom work.
