WEST February/March Design Challenge: Emerald Green

It's time for WEST to resume it's regular Design Challenges! It's been a little while since we've had one, so here's how it works:

I'll post the theme/inspiration on the blog and in our team discussion forum on Etsy. Your job is to take that inspiration in whatever direction your imagination leads. The goal is to challenge yourself, be inspired and enjoy the creative process! 

As you think about the theme, add comments to the discussion thread on Etsy about your process. Take pictures of your process and the finished item and post them in the discussion thread when you are done. It's interesting and inspiring to others to hear the story about how you arrived at your finished product, so please share at least a comment about your process! I will post the results of the challenge after the deadline. If we get enough items, I'll make a treasury including all the items! 

And now on to the current challenge! The theme for the next month is the Pantone Colour of the Year 2013, Emerald Green! Let the colour inspire you, but don't be too hung up on recreating this precise colour. The deadline for this challenge is one month from yesterday, March 7, with the results being posted on March 8, just before St. Patrick's Day!

And to inspire you further:

Ear cuff, chain, and Green Shell Earrings by Secret Jewelry
1930's Ladies Day Dress by WildRoseVintage

A few notes: 
Create something new, especially for the challenge. Entries for each challenge must be finished by the posted deadline. Vintage and supply sellers are welcome to participate too, with a focus on artful photography and careful choice of item. 

Happy designing!
I hope this inspires you, and I can't wait to see what you'll come up with!
