Full Circle With Ann Ko, Liven Co.


Ann Ko, the third-generation creative director/designer of Liven Co. jewelry, was actually once on the path to becoming a doctor!

2017: The Year of Peridot


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. Yes, I did liken it to a certain slimy substance brought to popularity by Nickelodeon (and I stand by that), but I also think that makes it…
