studio flowers: star jasmine

Pale yellow star jasmine (Trachelospermum asiaticum) flowers and green leaves in a bud vase by Heath Ceramics on a desk in Wraptillion's studio workspace, with the modern botanical-inspired Rose Window Earrings, Trellis Earrings, and Garland Earrings, reading glasses, pliers, and jewelry components..

I wish you could smell the star jasmine I cut to enjoy in my studio this week. Its gorgeous, haunting scent makes me think of evenings in California (where I grew up), lush and lovely as gardenias and orange blossom, but much easier to grow in my colder Seattle-area garden. I love the spiky, delicate flowers and shining green leaves with my Rose Window Earrings, Trellis Earrings, and Garland Earrings (from my modern botanical-inspired Mechanical Garden jewelry collection), above. This pale yellow version is Trachelospermum asiaticum, a little hardier than the Trachelospermum jasminoides I remember.

Here’s a closeup (in my favorite Heath Ceramics bud vase — mine’s in their Redwood glaze, which doesn’t seem to be available right now.)

Time to get back to work! Or… I could watch the mesmerizing swing of these earrings a little longer…
