Marsala: Pantone Color of the Year 2015

Pantone announced last week the New Color of the Year for 2015, and I couldn't be happier! Marsala, a rich reddish brown inspired by the Sicilian cooking wine, is the must-have hue of 2015.

"It is such a deliciously warm shade, you can almost taste it just by looking at it." says Pantone Color Institute's executive director, Leatrice Eiseman.

“Sensual and appealing, Marsala is a compelling and cordial tone that nurtures; exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind and soul,” the color experts at Pantone said in their announcement.  Check out our gorgeous fish scale necklace Rosario Islands.

Another way to indulge: Swipe it on your lips. "This color flatters the mouth's natural pigments, so it works for everyone." says Bobbi Brown
Eiseman says: “the burnished undertones keep it down-to-earth” Pair it with a neutral (think navy or black) or try a complementary color, such as mustard.
 Now I must admit that I gravitate towards a deeper, richer version of this mauve, red wine-like color, and so that's what I'm showing you today.
Not sure the hue is for you? “The best way to get accustomed to a color is to use it in a print with other colors you really really love,” Eiseman says. And there’s no need to wait until 2015 to give it a try. Check out our Amazon Rainforest Necklace in Marsala & Navy.
So what do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Wonders of the Sea

"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonders forever." ~ Jacques Cousteau

White Sea charm bracelet

There's something about the sea that has always captivated me, and I was lucky enough to live by the sea for many years. I really enjoyed those days and I still do when I go to the beach. Everything I know about the sea I learned it from Jacques Cousteau' s documentaries, they were my favorites ...

I was amazed to see the beauty of the sea life, from the largest creatures, the blue whales, whose beautiful songs travel thousands of miles under the ocean, to the tiny and fragile sea horses. Curiously, males are the ones that get pregnant and deliver their offspring!
Not only the sky has stars ... the sea offers a variety of star-shaped animals (starfish) in a variety of colors and sizes! Finally, the survival instinct of the baby sea turtles is really amazing. Watching them struggle out of the nest and make their way to the water is an emotional experience! They have to face everything from driftwood and footprints to crabs and predators. This is so inspiring!
Our White Sea charm bracelet is definitely a show-stopper and will ensure you get plenty of compliments!
