Fresh Take on Turquoise

Yesterday, I introduced you to my fabulous friend & our first guest blogger, Shelly Rosenberg.  Today, she shares her fresh take on the 2010 color of the year featuring our good friend & jewelry designer, Elizabeth Showers.  Enjoy!

Fresh is the new fix in an economy that has us feeling deep blue. Take it up a notch with a hue to good to be true! Who says? Pantone, the Oz of the color wheel, gives Turquoise the title: Color of the Year, 2010! We need vibrant, chin-to-the-sun fun. Let’s walk like Egyptians and embrace this historic tint they honored for it’s restorative and healing power.

Energy is not all it’s got- fashion says it’s hip and haute. Dive into your favorite mags and notice it in the most delicate of porcelain, sleek urban furnishings, punchy textiles and the most exquisite bijoux!

Bling is the thing for our beloved local designer, Elizabeth Showers. Her designs celebrate the most refined version of this gem. Her work has been featured in O Magazine, Town & Country and Vogue and is treasured by A-list celebs. In a word, her art is simply stunning. This designer aims to “empower all women to feel beautiful.” Aligned with her trademark logo, The Hope Star, her affair with turquoise offers inspiration to us and integrity to a stone often overlooked.

So taken was she that her new ride is now all the rage. Years ahead of the curve, London’s Mini Cooper is fashion forward…In her limited edition, Elizabeth cruises in style. Here, the plucky partner to our featured shade is brown- in yummy shades of chocolate and toffee! Pleasure and sophistication coexist with Elizabeth at the helm.
