Fantasia


In the second part of the collaboration with Glisten Jewel, I took the gorgeous Fantasia necklace out to look for some ajisai, or hydrangeas in Japanese. These pastel-colored bunches bloom here and there on the streets in the most beautiful shades of pink, blue, and purple. The weather is so unpredictable in Japan these days, with the weather forecast predicting rain every day, but sometimes random periods of soft sunlight filtering through the clouds, followed by sudden rainstorms. Apparently these flowers will last only a little while longer, like all seasonal plants here. It's hard to believe that in a few months, the vibrant greens will be replaced by orange and brown, a chill will blow through the air, and trees will light afire in fall colors. Let's enjoy the beauty in each season!
