I didn’t expect to be inspired to write a blog about the James Taylor concert we went to in Hyde Park in the summer, but his beautiful song one of my favorites from many years ago, reminded me of colour combinations I have always loved.
There is an old fashioned saying that tries to persuade us that ‘ blues and greens should never be seen’. I am never following that advice - after all nature hasn’t. The song ringing in my head as an ear worm recalls bluebells in woods, a tree against a summer sky, seaweed in the water – every scene beautiful, refreshing and inspiring.
I was once snorkeling in the Caribbean and was surrounded by thousands of bright blue Angel fish shoaling in a solid wall of colour, winding a brilliant tube of colour around me just a few feet away. The electric blue against a blurry green sea. I will never forget the wonderful colour and exhilaration of that scene!
Right now I am working on a new swan ring design, and some more paisley inspired jewels incorporating ‘deep greens and blues’.
