Pantone has become the authority on color in the design world. Pantone sets color standards making it possible to effectively communicate color across the many media of design – digitally and in print. Pantone also watches and forecasts color trends, impacting the palette choice of designers around the world.
The Pantone color of 2017 is Greenery! Pantone described Greenery as, “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.” Nothing could sound better as we chip and thaw our way out of yet another ice storm in Portland this winter!
We love this color and it can be found in many pieces of the TASI line! Greenery is a match to the gorgeous stone Green Garnet, a gemstone option for all pieces in the TASI Gemstone Collection. Green Garnet is said to promote confidence and stability in challenges. It is a beautiful accent to silver and even more rich when paired with gold. View the Gemstone Collection and all the designs that can feature Green Garnet - the color trend for 2017.
Greenery is also the color of Peridot, one of Taya’s favorite gemstones to feature in one-of-a-kind designs, and the birthstone for August!

We're excited to announce that a necklace from TASI Men is in the 10th Anniversary Art Edition of W Magazine!
Artists Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin chose to include the Antler Necklace for a spread with Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner! The artist's commission for W Magazine features the models styled and edited to represent highly adaptive domesticated animals in a humanoid zoo. The article accompanying the photos is worth the read to learn more about the vision behind the unique spread!

Earlier this month, we hosted our favorite African bead trader, Taya’s step-dad, Ebrima Sillah. Ebrima travels the world sharing his amazing beads and textiles with collectors, bead storeowners, and jewelry designers. But he always saves the most special pieces for the family; we’re so lucky!
On this trip, Taya’s stepbrother Saibo was travelling with and helping Ebrima. Saibo recently moved to Columbus, OH from Gambia and has been training to take over the business one day. Saibo will become the fourth generation of bead and textile traders in the Sillah legacy.
It was so much fun catching up with our local community of African bead enthusiasts as Ebrima’s contacts came to the studio to check out his current collection. We love how these artifacts continue to inspire awareness for the cultures and places from which they came.
We couldn’t help ourselves, and were filling up our basket as Ebrima and Saibo were unloading the van. One of our favorites from this visit was Ebrima’s collection of Tamba belts from his own country, Gambia. We have been featuring Tamba beads in our Stowaway line, and you can expect some new designs and new color sweeps for the Spring Stowaway collection!Ebrima’s visit couldn’t have come at a better time as we are expanding our collection of one-of-a-kind Tasi pieces that feature rare and antique ethnic beads. We are so inspired to design with these components, giving them a new path on their journey through the world as objects of personal adornment.
