There is something about Christmas that brings out the ‘green’ in me. Perhaps it was because last night I sat around the table with a gaggle of girls making Christmas wreaths. Our base was deep, lush yew fronds twisted and tied around a wire coat hanger which we formed into a round. The kitchen table was full of berry branches, holly leaves and mistletoe, florists’ wire and ribbon. I was having a ‘Kirstie Allsop: Homemade Home‘ moment … sigh. All I need now is to get Mr Adorn to hang it on our door and I will post a pic, I promise. But back to jewellery – herewith some of my favourite green jewels from as early as the 1930s.
