Sunday Themes - Orange

My theme for this week is the colour Orange. Orange is vibrant. It's a combination of red and yellow so it shares some common attributes with those colours. It denotes energy, warmth, and the sun. As a warm colour orange is a stimulant — stimulating the emotions and even the appetite. Orange can be found in nature in the changing leaves of fall, the setting sun, and the skin and meat of citrus fruit. Orange brings up images of autumn leaves, pumpkins, and Halloween. It represents the changing seasons so in that sense it is a colour on the edge, the colour of change between the heat of summer and the cool of winter.

My best example of a piece made in the Orange colour is my Sterling and Carnelian Ring.

Here are some more examples of orange being used by the Jet and BrisStyle teams:
