The Colour Brown – add some Green

This is part of a series of posts about colour.  This month I am focusing on the colour brown.

Remember last month when I was talking about the colour red?  I mentioned that the complimentary colour for red was green.  And I might have mentioned that I wasn’t a huge fan of that colour combination because it looked a bit “christmassy”?

Well, the same cannot be said for the colour brown with green.  Colours straight out of nature (think trees), but they work so well in jewellery too!  What I really like about this combination is that it can be worn with lots of different clothes.  All of your browns, greens and even RED will work with this jewellery.
