Growing up, my moms green thumb meant that many of my first introductions to color were through flowers.  Morning glories welcomed me in the morning, daffodils provided a playful activity, and each summer, I waited patiently for the Hydrangeas to bloom, always trying to predict what color they would be. Hydrangeas make quite the statement, each colorful sphere composed of delicate petals in varying shades of blue, purple, pink or white. The glass beads used in the Hydrangea necklace are reminiscent of these four leafed petals. The color of the glass alternates between a pale blue and soft lavender depending on the clothes it is paired with. Just like its namesake, which can last as fresh stems in a vase or preserved in dried bouquets, the Hydrangea necklace will transcend the seasons.
