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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
