Green like the grass...

The final weeks of winter are upon us which means rolling fields and leaves of green are on the horizon. Green is my favorite color and coming from a self described color addict, that's saying something. I like it in emerald, chartreuse, pine, lime, zucchini and pickle (for a start). It a color that represents freshness, new beginnings, health and vibrancy.

In color theory, green is considered a secondary color, meaning that its created by mixing 2 primary colors together (blue and yellow). One of the main principles in color theory is "harmony". In visual experiences, harmony is something that is pleasing to the eye. It engages the viewer and it creates an inner sense of order, a balance in the esthetic experience. The greens on any color palette are consistently the most harmonious alongside any color. Now, this is strictly my personal opinion (but it's true!). Using nature as an example: Find a color in nature that isn't complimented by its naturally green backdrop. Next to impossible right?

As most of you know, we're in the middle of our "7 Weeks of Rainbows" celebration which means that we're celebrating color in all of it's glorious shades. We're also giving away a pair of earrings a week (in the color of the week) to a lucky winner. So far, we've done garnets (juicy and berry red), carnelian (fiery orange) and citrine (bright, honey colored yellow). This wek, we're doing green apple quartz! Remember that quartz is one of the most powerful stones you can wear, especially right next to your brain (aka ears). Quartz is the stone of clarity and wearing it helps to enhance your own personal clarity. So we're combining the harmony of the color green and the clarity of the quartz crystal. Should be a power duo! Enter below. Remember too, to check out our facebook page for daily eye candy in the shades of the week. a Rafflecopter giveaway
