Summer in the Prairies could be summed up by one word: Grain.
In the Central-Northern region of Alberta, every year in July, you see yellow as far as the eye can see.
Canola oil production is a huge deal around here, and confirmed by the sea of yellow Canola flowers that you see all around you, no matter where you turn your head. It's beautiful, happy and sunny!
Couple that with vast clear blue skies, and you know that you've arrived in the Canadian Prairies :)
I have two go-to oils when I cook: Canola Oil and Olive Oil... I love to cook, and the beautiful golden color of canola oil is a staple at our house and in our RV.
Inspired by all this, I found in my stash a pair of beautiful yellow golden citrine drops (their shape and color reminds me of large drops of Canola Oil), that I have coupled with a pair of very playful and sunny artisan glass beads with shades of yellow and a pop of red for a touch of playfulness. These beads also have that bit of 'stormy weather' in there with the silvered glass reaction, which instantly transforms sunny skies into storms almost every night here.
All set on 14kt Gold Filled, for this golden-colored metal speaks of Summer:
Lightweight, flirty and happy, you can find these Prairie-Inspired earrings on my website HERE.
