I am so excited to introduce you to a trusted colleague and fellow color enthusiast, Jewelry Designer Sara Silvio. Years ago, a client of mine introduced me to Sara's work and since then I have had the pleasure of analyzing her colors, choosing pieces which have become favorites in my own jewelry collection and collaborating to bring our clients masterfully crafted wearable art.
After years of preparation, Sara and I are now launching an exquisite line of jewelry exclusively curated for the Indigo Tones 12 seasonal tones. With unequivocal passion and painstaking enthusiasm, we have created collections of unique pieces inspired by her world travels to reflect the colors and vibe of each season. Meet Sara!
Having things in order and making them beautiful has always been integral to who I am. Most of us don’t operate well in chaos, but this is especially true for me. As a child, I found it calming to place objects, such as my colored pencils or nail polish, into a rainbow pattern or tones within a color. I still do this today, now with art, books or materials in my studio. What inspires me most in my work are the unique materials that I have hand-picked in my travels. As luck would have it, many traders I’ve encountered in India and other places also arrange their selections of gemstones by color.
Some years back, a close friend of mine shared her experience of seeing Kerry. The moment I put my hands on her swatch book, I felt magnetically connected to what Kerry was doing. I couldn’t take my eyes off of her exquisite arrays of colors.
Of course, I had to get my own color done and upon discovering that I am a Dark Winter I resonated completely. The rich, deep colors are those that I feel most myself in and express myself in the jewelry I wear. After learning about the process, I invited Kerry to my studio. I was truly inspired by our shared passion for color, and the lenses through which we see the world. Shortly afterward, I acquired all twelve of her swatch books! We instantaneously bonded over aesthetics and order. Holding them in my hand, looking through each season, and getting the feel for each season and how the seasons flow into each other became a meditation that is still powerfully grounding for me today.
Kerry and I decided to take all of the materials that I have collected over the years and organize them by the twelve seasons–basically the best project EVER. The drawers of my red craftsman are now lined with the colors of each season accompanied by a swatch book. The jewelry that I create aligns with these seasons, from the gem tones to the metals. The language of color analysis infused into jewelry design is by far one of my favorite languages of love. Working together and designing within this framework is ever-evolving and couldn’t be more perfect for me as an artist.
For many years, Kerry and I have shared a vision of curating a collection of jewelry for each season. How great would it be if someone could go on the Indigo Tones website and click their season to then find their perfect collection of personalized jewelry made from hand-picked materials that align with Kerry’s swatch books? The time finally arrived for us to embark on this project together and we are ready to launch the Sara Silvio Jewelry exclusive collection with Indigo Tones!
I believe our colors and their season is a place to feel special, beautiful, and rooted. When someone finds a piece of jewelry that aligns with their season, it brings out their inner radiance. When we feel comfortable and beautiful in who we naturally are, it helps us to become the best version of ourselves and really shine. When we land into ourselves, we tap into our wholeness and a sense of belonging, and who doesn’t want to feel that?
Through these curated collections of jewelry, I offer people the experience to feel whole and luminous every day. I continue to explore the single elemental question of how to be vivid in the expression of self, while creating jewelry that helps others to do the same.
"I love having my clothing all in harmony, accented with jewelry from Sara Silvio. Her designs are everyday pieces and coordinate easily with my Cool Summer wardrobe (all silver for me!). It is now so simple to create style and comfort bringing me a sense of confidence, beauty and femininity.” Lori, Cool Summer

I observed grace under pressure in a high pitched environment when I met this month’s Bright Winter feature: Cindy Christi at the United States National Pageant several years ago. As founder of Cindy Christi TV, Cindy helps CEO’s, Speakers, Best Selling Authors, On-Air Personalities and Pageant Contestants fall in love with their brand voice, so they can step into the spotlight and lead their legacy with confidence, clarity and ease.
Our roles at the pageant were aligned in helping the contestants andNational Titleholders shine on stage and throughout their reign. Cindy’s professionalism and ease in front of the camera and steadying presence onstage set the tone for contestants and the pageant as a whole.
It was clear right away thatshe was a Bright Winter when I started draping her. Wow! She truly lights up the room in the right pops of color.

The past year I had the fortune to get to know an amazing couple who uniquely embraced growth through color and brought much inspiration to me personally and professionally. They worked as a team with me to modify their wardrobes, redo their closet and bring all they learned during their color consultation into other aspects of their lives.
In October, I introduced you to Warm Autumn, Erin Sirianni and now it is my pleasure for you to meet her Cool Winter husband, Danny. While Danny's coloring is dark and cool, his personality is warm and open. As a Realtor and business owner of Sirianni Realty, he understands that real estate decisions are made visually and viscerally. He saw immediately the value in wearing flattering and harmonious colors and promptly incorporated it into his approach to his business.
