Persephone in Autumn

Persephone has begun her odyssey.
The annual journey, passing from the sight of this world and slipping into the realm of the Shades, and Hades, Lord of the Underworld. 
To mark her passing, the trees put on cloaks of gold, russet and crimson and soon will become bare. Traceries against the sky. Grass withers to pale cream and brown, flowers fade. Her mother Demeter, turns her face from the world missing her daughter and the world becomes dark and cold and plants sleep waiting.

These earrings are inspired by the legend of Persephone.
The bronze discs are torch patinaed for the leaves of autumn. The dark shaped copper is for the darkness of winter. Persephone has lost the brilliance of summer, and has become pale as the sunset in the winter fog. There is one final leaf with just a hint of the green it used to be.
Be patient world, she will return.


  1. I'm catching up on some of my favorite blogs and I want one of those anvils!!! Love your work, Greer! Your earrings are the bomb!

    North Light's warehouse was sold out of books in two days after it arrived ... which is good and bad news! As a craftsperson who has probably done her fair share of shows, you never want to sell out! I'm sorry you're having to wait, but it's on it's way.

    We're going to be having a great virtual book tour starting October 5. I hope you follow along because there will be giveaways throughout the entire time ... plus we have some very interesting blog sites to visit! :-)

  2. So pretty Greer! I love the inspiration story of Persephone. Thank you for reminding me to look back my favorite mythology stories for great starts!
    Enjoy the day!
