This New Jewelry Was Inspired by the Great Beyond

Think stars, clouds and other wonders of above.

For Martha Seely, the universe — especially stars, clouds and other wonders of above — is an important artistic influence. It’s one reason she especially likes creating jewelry with gemstones in colors often seen in nature. I’ve noticed that, for the upcoming season, the Concord, MA, designer seems smitten with green gems.

“Usually I don’t follow trends because my goal is to make designs to last,” she recently told me. But, as it happens, with Greenery being the Pantone 2017 Color of the Year, she conceded, “For my newest collection, the whole green stone element fell into place.”

That, it did. She’s featuring a lot of peridot, tsavorite and chrome diopside, along with a black opal with strong natural blue/green mixes.

What can we expect from Martha in the future? “Demantoid garnet,” she says. “It’s still green, but with more yellow overtones than these others I’ve been using. I adore the flashes of light it reflects. So unusual and beautiful.” www.marthaseely.com

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
