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

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
