What: Green Turquoise Necklace by Patricia von Muselin
Why: Although generally I do best with the cool greens, there are certain yellow greens that are very good on me. They bring out the greens in my eyes, they balance the pinky-blue-lilacs in my skin. This green is one of those greens, as are certain shades of olive, and a particular green that my brother dubbed "urpy green" when we were children.
This green makes me happy. It is a spring green and I see it primarily as a summer necklace. Summer is hard for me. Many of the large dramatic pieces I am drawn too seem to be too much in the summer. But this is not too much. It plays well with white, and soft blues, and all the purples and lavenders that populate my wardrobe.
As you can see, it is a very close match to my new alpaca scarf. In fact, it was the necklace that inspired me to make the scarf. I would sit in the yarn shop knitting and talking to my friends and I would stare at that green alpaca, thinking to myself that it was the same color as that green necklace and wouldn't a green scarf be just the perfect thing. And so it is.
