Cornflowers in Your Hair SOLD

A quotation from one of my all time favorite movies is Room with a View. Aficionados will recognize this line which Mr. Beeb, the vicar, utters in astonishment to one of the ladies, "Miss Catherine, you have cornflowers in your hair." You'd have to know the scene to appreciate the line!

I love cornflower blue. It matches my eyes (although, if I'm honest with myself, they're a bit more gray). Blue has always been my favorite color. So many things I love are blue--the open sky, a myriad of waters, my children's eyes, and a host of flowers in all variations of blue. It's been exciting to find natural beads in all of God's colors.

These are delightful earrings. 10mm faceted crab agate beads in cornflower blue, topped with lacy silver filigree bead caps and a 4mm clear crystal. I've used heavily plated silver french hooks for this pair, but can exchange for kidney wires for a longer look. Just email me.
