I have this thing where I get obsessed with certain colors. Lately it's been turquoise. It's a summer thing: I always get obsessed with turquoise in the summer.
I know, you're thinking "it's April! Summer's not exactly around the corner!" This is true. Summer isn't here yet, but the promise of warm weather hangs in the air. Even though I work in an office five days of the week, I always feel like summer represents vacation time and leisurely days spent by the pool.
Poolâ€¦ Turquoiseâ€¦ you get the idea.
Dana Kellin is my new muse. Her work is all over the web. Most of it has an unfortunate homemade quality, but she has a number of lovely pieces with coiled 14k gold and well-chosen gemstones.
Dana has embraced amazonite, which is a greenish stone. Set in gold, it looks terrific, and she has at least thee pieces I'd love to own – a round amazonite pendant, a larger oval pendant, and also a set of earrings.
If I had to choose, the oval pendant would win, hand's down. But, thanks to Dana, it's a tough competition!
