Each year when we go up to my grandmother's cabin, on our initial walk to the beach we walk with haste to see who will make it to the blackberry brambles first and announce the advent of summer berries. We were a few weeks too early this year to gather enough berries for pie and jam, but on our last day we found the mother lode--handfuls of juicy plump berries right within reach. I gathered enough for us to have a bowl full of berries and cream...mmm, what a delight. We even had enough left over for a quart of jam, which incidentally, was delectably wiped up with Mark's homemade sourdough biscuits a few days ago.
The natural purple swirls in the crazy lace agate in our Blackberry Bramble reminded me of a bowl full of berries and cream as the cream is tinged purplish from the crushed fruit. I added in lavender hued freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals, too. Necklace is long at 40 inches.
