    I couldn’t tell from the photo of the piece, do you string the bellflowers in with the mix or use them for earrings?

    Kimberlywilliams60 says:

    They are randomly strung into the strands but matching earrings are a great idea !!

    I think this is an any season necklace. It would brighten against summer an spring colors. Against fall colors the shine from the beads would brighten the fall clothes.

    I agree with Pam. You have some nice soft neutrals and colors (elderberry, citrus) that would work for summer, yet your deeper browns and golds would be nice for winter sweaters and pants. Really nice pick!

    Oh, I missed this POD– Congrats, Kimberly! Thanks for posting a pick with components from your stunning lariat necklace; it’s a fabulous design that would be beautiful, easy & fun to wear. I love the colors for late summer in anticipation of fall. The yellow flowers make me think of August goldenrod in this context, even though the hibiscus shape is quite different from goldenrod’s compound heads of tiny blossoms & the hue is cooler, almost lemon-lime. Brains can be funny like that. (My brain may be funnier than most, admittedly.)
