Handmade accessories for Fall

By Linda Demers

October is one of my favorite months.  I love the changing leaves, the cooler crisp air, and the smell of leaves burning.  I’ve begun putting away my kids summer clothes and unpacking their winter coats, sweaters, and jeans.  For me, Fall is a great time to accessorize and add interesting layers to my wardrobe.  Here are a few Fall finds handmade by talented artisans right here in Rhode Island.    [Click photos to see more from each artisan]
