I challenged myself to stay with a simple, classic stringing scheme (it's only five months in Hong Kong, and I'm already used to using "scheme" instead of "plan" in my vocabulary) to complement this stunning, encased floral focal by Sarah Hornik. While florals aren't Sarah's "thing," she does them SO well. I love fun, bright, funky floral things. Finished off in small turquoise rounds and sterling silver handmade figure-eight chain.
These are the earrings that complement the Simple Southwest necklace above. They are a little bit blingy due to the length and silver, but are still demure because of focusing on the turquoise and staying with small beads.
