Leaving behind 2016 and it’s series of unfortunate worldwide events, we are introduced to 2017 and with it, Pantone has spoken. This year it’s the turn of Greenery or, to be precise, Pantone 15-0343.
Greenery quite aptly signifies beginnings: a New Year; new resolutions for a healthier you alongside growing vegetarian & vegan inclinations; nature and wildlife during springtime and the summer seasons.
This little number will allow gemstones such as the Tsavorite Garnet, Green Sapphire, Jade, Peridot, Emerald, Jasper, Topaz & Tourmaline to name but a few, to enter the limelight. Those of you with Birthdays in January (Garnet), May (Emerald), August (Peridot), September (Sapphire), and even October (Opal), can celebrate 2017 knowing that this year your stones are fashionistas in their own right.
Keeping in touch with nature is something I hold quite dear to my heart. The natural world has always had an exceptional influence in my work and features quite predominantly in many of my collections and pieces. One quite fitting for this years colour scheme are my carved Emerald earrings;
In the course of this year I shall be partaking in events and exhibitions across the country including the Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design held in Cheltenham and the C.C.D: SELECTION, a smaller exhibit with a ‘Meet The Maker’ preview event in May being held in London as part of the run up to the larger, main exhibition in August in Cheltenham.
