These JCK Tucson Designers Get Creative—Minimal Gems Required For a week of events typically dedicated to gemstones, it might seem odd to talk about Tucson and stoneless designs in the same breath. But that’s just what I’m about to do, considering a great many designers getting ready to show off their creations at JCK Tucson feature styles that require little to no additional adornment.

2017: The Year of Peridot

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.
