I typically don't like pastel colors, but I have become obsessed with mint green. I like how it is bright and cheery but a bit understated (or at least understated for me). this spring I knew I had to incorporate mint into my collection, and I did so by using mint ribbon in my silver natalie necklace

here are some images that gave me color inspiration:

my spring collection has launched! it is definitely my most colorful collection yet. my collection combines multicolored jade, bright orange carnelian, colorful chalcedony, and lots of other gemstones. my collection was inspired by choi gene-uk's painting, the window. I came across this incredibly colorful painting during a trip to the seoul museum of art.
when I discovered this painting, I spent forever looking at all of the different color combinations. my iphone is filled with snapshots of pieces of the canvas. above are some of the pictures I took. I brought the colorful splotches to life in my latest collection, available here.

I recently went to tucson, az for the famous gem show. my mom came with me and we had a great time picking out gemstones for my upcoming collections. and it was also nice to get a break from the wintery east coast weather. here are some snapshots from the trip!
