I’ve never been of the notion that colour has effects on people but there are quite a number of studies and articles on the effects of colours on your mood and behavior.

Some say a person’s mien is based on the colours they put on, while others say looking at a particular colour affects a person’s psyche.

I’m not a big fan of green, but my male colleagues kept complimenting my green top yesterday, one actually told me ‘green is your colour’ and advised that I get a wardrobe overhaul and buy green things….yeah right…..like I’d want to dress like a nature enthusiast every day.

I remember the crystal shopping spree I went on last month, I found a gorgeous string of tumbled sea green aventurine, the first thing I thought apart from the fact that they looked like sweets……..was ‘Serenity’. The beads had such a calming effect on me, it brought to mind a warm summer day, a whispering breeze and the sweet smell of flowers, sand and surf. I’m not sure it was the colour but I was willing to find out.

Tumble Sea Green Aventurine

I got online and stumbled across this site www.colour-affects.co.uk and I was surprised at what I found out;

GREEN they say represents balance. Its positive effects are harmony, balance, refreshment, universal love, rest, restoration, reassurance, environmental awareness, equilibrium and peace.

Its negative effects are boredom, stagnation, blandness and enervation.

An excerpt from the page says;

“Green strikes the eye in such a way as to require no adjustment whatever and is, therefore, restful. Being in the centre of the spectrum, it is the colour of balance – a more important concept than many people realise. When the world about us contains plenty of green, this indicates the presence of water, and little danger of famine, so we are reassured by green, on a primitive level. Negatively, it can indicate stagnation and, incorrectly used, will be perceived as being too bland.”

Really??? so the aventurine caused me to be calm? Hmmmn…….

I’m not sure about its effects but I knowI prefer sea green to other harsh shades, Isn’t the colour of this watch to die for?

Here are some pictures of the sea green necklace I made with the aventurine. (ignore my amateur photography skills)
Necklace is made of: Tumbled sea green Aventurine, blue hand cut glass beads, Blue zircon Swarovski bicones, gold balls and 9 carat gold heart link chain.
Finally done with this post, it’s been such a busy week….ended up putting it together in bits and pieces.

 Anyone have ideas on what to call this piece?
