Tender Shoots

Vivid spring green is always a winner after a winter full of deep (and by February, kinda dreary) hues. Tender Shoots calls up images of fresh new growth from the dormant earth, and also images of really amazing fresh green layering pieces and chunky bracelets, and maybe a Tender Shoots peep toe pump. Who says we’re not nature lovers?
