That Design Life: Jewels Made By People You Want to Know

Comments

Farm-to-table. Small batch. Shop local. As more and more consumers demand to know not only where their goods are coming from but who is making them, designer jewelry (that is, jewelry truly dreamt up and realized by individual designers) is more important than ever. In a share-everything society, we often feel as if we know celebrities, athletes, and fashion designers, because we’re privy to an insider’s look at their lives (or at least, the lives they want us to see)—a rarity, if it existed at all, even 10 years ago.

Comments

Thanks to Pantone’s Greenery Though Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year was met with mixed reactions, you can’t deny that, after a year of muted, pastel colors, Greenery is a lively choice. “A fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore, and renew,” according to Pantone, Greenery is the pop of color I think many of us need as we enter the New Year.
