COVID Blues Colour Theory Essay

COVID Blues Colour Theory Essay

COVID Blue – Colour Theory Essay

The state of not feeling quite right, but not quite 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 the feet. Whether or not the rug was actually blue.

Needing a dose of something incredibly vivid to shock the system into feeling itself again. Be more vivid – always a good stage direction.

Blue and Green Howlite Butterfly Colour Theory Necklace

Those delicious shades of blue that connect us to the sky – with no vapour trails – we all saw that 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 – marvelling at 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?

Purple 2019

Purple 2019


Coach House Gallery, February 2019.


We were excited to be invited back to the Coach House Gallery for another exhibition based on colour, following the success of Yellow.

We were delighted to be taking part in the “Purple” exhibition at the Coach House Gallery, St Peters, Guernsey. 

This time the theme is the colour ‘Purple.’ This exhibition will include work from a group of invited artists

For this exhibition we created a triptych of show stopping jewellery in the best colour ever – purple. Once again, there is an accompanying essay, where we spill the purple beans. 

> These are an enriched version of our bestselling style of waterfall earrings, festooned with purple freshwater pearls, a much more elaborate earring. 

Lovely and light to wear, but beautifully long, dangly and eye catching, Each pearl hangs separately from the chain, and they spiral around the centre line in such a way that the earrings are a mirror image of each other. 

< Mary Quant eat your heart out. Massive blowsy flowers in purple leather, embellished with amethysts and dyed jade hearts. Hugely over the top, outsized and not for the faint hearted. We love making things like these, real show stopping pieces.
