Classic Blue COVID Circle – October 2020
We created seven brand new necklaces for the Community Arts Festival at St.James Concert Hall. They were created for the theme of COVID Blues.
We wanted to use our medium of jewellery to express how we felt about lockdown and the blues that came along with it.
Using the shade of classic blue, which was 2020’s colour of the year as our starting point, we worked from there to create these fabulous necklaces.
We have written a brand new colour theory essay to compliment the new necklaces.
COVID – BLUES
That state of not feeling quite right, but not being able to put your finger on the reason why. Not physically ill, not suffering any actual symptoms of anything that can be seen or treated in the traditional sense. Just feeling low – not depressed, not even anxious – just uncertain about the future. Feeling that the rug has been pulled out from under our feet. Whether or not the rug was actually blue!
Needing a dose of something incredibly vivid to shock the system into feeling itself again, to break out from the bell jar and feel alive again. Be more vivid, always a good stage direction.
Those delicious shades of blue connect us to the sky – with no vapour trails – we all saw the sky this summer and marvelled at its clear expanse, feeling the benefit of those calming shades over our heads.
The piercing bright blue of light hitting the water at a certain angle – its opaque expanse, feeling the benefit of those waves, whether we swam in them and felt the power of the negative ions or walked alongside them and heard the soothing sounds.
So, for COVID blues, the antidote might actually be COVID blues, who knew?
