June Haiku Art: Waterfalls

I love the June prompt word:  Waterways.  Having grown up on the Great Lakes and steeped in the history and lore of the St. Lawrence Seaway I immediately thought of Niagara Falls.  And a more recent Falls discovery - Minnehaha Falls.
I am currently working on a couple of water related quilt art projects and did not want to start another one right now.  So I turned to another art form and designed and made Waterfall earrings.

Waterfalls    the Haiku

cascading splendor
mists rising torrents swirling
mighty falls thunder
and the Art

Sterling Silver and Swarovski Crystals

Very pretty!
And totally unrelated to the art, but I think we have the same crystal pattern :)

These are lovely Guila! What a neat idea to interpret in beads, I love it. I especially love your haiku...incredibly descriptive...well done!

Your earrings are beautiful, Guila! They really do look like sunlight shining into a waterfall.
