These are simply elegant earrings. The square turquoise beads immediately caught my attention in the store. And I got similar ones in red. Silver spacers and bugle beads, and of course my ever-favourite crystal beads add nice texture and sparkle.
The earrings are hanging from my perennially disappointing lupine plant. I added one to my front garden after a trip to Nova Scotia, where they grow wild everywhere. I just loved the flowery stalks and wanted some in my yard as a memento of the trip. Every summer it slowly, but surely unfurls its fan-like leaves. But not a single bloom so far. Sigh.
