Neon Blue.


Handmade short necklace made out of enchained blue crystals and enamel charms. The matching dangle earrings are included.
The enamel charms and neon blue crystals are chained up with brass headpins. As fastener, there is a brass round clasp.
The necklace is approximately 15.7 inches, but can be made longer or shorter upon request. For the thickness, you may consider the crystals are 10 mm diameter and slightly oval.
This is a classic kitsch jewel made even more vivacious by the enamel charms. It suits both teen girls and women.
Being a chain of crystals, the necklace is luminous and as light as a feather (as well as the earrings).
Colors are very impressive...Especially neon blue, which is totally glam!
The enamel charms are nicely colored too. From the left, you meet: bird, apple, bird, owl, bird, bunny, bird. The bird-shaped charm is also used in both the earrings.

Girocollo fatto a mano, realizzato con cristalli blu neon e ciondoli smaltati. Gli orecchini sono inclusi nel prezzo.
I ciondoli smaltati e i cristalli blu neon sono infilati usando chiodini e maglie d'ottone. Come chiusura un moschettone rotondo, sempre di ottone.
La collana è circa 40 centimetri, ma può essere modificata su richiesta. Per lo spessore, potete considerare che i cristalli sono 10 mm di diametro e leggermente ovali.
Questo girocollo è un classico della bigiotteria kitsch, reso ancora più vivace dai piccoli ciondoli smaltati.
Essendo una catena di cristalli, la collana e' luminosa e leggera come una piuma (e così anche gli orecchini).
I colori sono davvero incredibili. Soprattutto il blu neon, che è totalmente glamour.
Anche i ciondoli smaltati sono colorati in modo allegro. Da sinistra la sequenza è: uccellino, mela, uccellino, gufo, uccellino, coniglietto, uccellino. Il ciondolo a forma di uccellino è usato anche in entrambi gli orecchini.

Tangerine Tango, the color of the year 2012

Last year was the energizing honeysuckle, a reddish pink.



This year is Tangerine Tango, a lively shade of orange.

Leatrice Eiseman, color specialist and executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®, states about Tangerine Tango: "Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it. Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy."
It may remember also some tone of stony coral.


People's reaction has been fun since Tangerine Tango is a very strong nuance. Someone is actually terrified by the idea to wear it! I personally like it, both used just in details


and everywhere!

You definitely must see her etsy shop and website. Very impressive works - she calls them "decadent"- by a young photographer from Novara, Piedmont, Italy.
