Color in Costume Jewelry: Orange

Posted by Laurie Zeiden on

When I decided to start a series on colors in costume jewelry, I was surprised to see how many orange pieces I had. It's not a color I wear or decorate with yet I seem to have an abundance of it. 

Orange is considered to be a happy color in many cultures, representing joy. It raises the spirits and invigorates the observer. It is a vibrant color that attracts the attention of the surroundings. It's associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics, and represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity and determination.

Orange you glad you looked through these photos? 

Footnote: Today is June 2nd and it has been designated Gun Awareness Day. It is a day of remembrance for victims of gun violence, an event largely propagated by gun control groups. I'm going to be out and about today and I hope to see everyone wearing orange!
