Week Of February 16 – Highlights

What you’re reading – Vermont Serpentine – From Tool To Jewel

At The Workbench – Another serpentine cut. One stone can yield several pieces. Like children, every piece has its own personality and shape, but all come from the same parent. One stone; many jewels. A multiplication of beauty.

In The News – The Pantone Color Institute has released it second annual color predictions for all design industries. The 10 favorites mark a unique trend in fashion according to the Institute. They should be featured in clothing and accessories beginning this Spring, and prominently by Fall. Indeed, according to the Institute, “The fall 2015 palette is rooted in multi-faceted, androgynous colors that can be worn to portray effortless sophistication across men’s and women’s fashion; it is the first time we are seeing a truly unisex color palette.”

A Touch Of Green – Green is the color of hope, but more than this, it is the color of harmony. These days, it certainly brings to mind environmental harmony. It is believed that all cultures associate green with renewal. It symbolizes new growth. Individuals who love green are sociable, but in a very soft manner. They may take part in group-minded activities, even activism, but in a modest capacity, without drawing attention to themselves. Green is bold and expansive, but never invading.

From The Archives – Second century AD Roman bronze coins, natural old Bisbee Arizona turquoise, silver and gold earrings and 22-k gold, ancient bronze coins and rose cut diamonds bracelet. Earlier this week, We posted about layering pendants. Ancient coin pendants lend themselves to this style with ease. You can obtain a stunning effect by layering them with plain gold chains or with other pieces featuring circular accents.
