Prop and Set Design

An Aquamarine aquarium. “Aqua Marina” is Latin for “sea water”. I imagined a little world where a girl could spend her days watching gemstone-studded jellies swim and aquamarine gardens grow on the ocean floor.

An Emerald flowercart specializing in restorative emerald- infused plants and healing crystals. The etymology of the emerald goes a long way (Greek’s “smaragdos” meaning “green gem”). Due to the literal meaning, I chose to focus on the natural beauty and therapeutic effect of the color and greenery.

The origin of “pearl” is derived from the Latin word “perna”, meaning “leg” so I thought of a ballet studio. The fun challenge was to find colors reminiscent of pearls without defaulting to just white and trying to incorporate an iridescent quality to it.
