Candide, muted gray with metallic white, metallic gray, warm neutrals and gold accents. Candide pattern of faceted, multicolored sapphire briolettes in clear, yellow, orange, pale blue, pale green and pink.

“I’m working on the choreography of a fountain show for Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. The show will include water, light, color, music and fireworks and will be called “Happy Birthday Leonard Bernstein” in honor of Bernstein’s 100th birthday. The overture from his Operetta Candide will be included. I think of it as playful, colorful, and full of energy. The definition of the word Candide (the best of all possible worlds), describes a naïve optimist, an innocent person.  

The apparent random quality to the pattern in the necklace is intended to be whimsical and a little naïve. The sapphires are spectral in color and express the playfulness of the theme and of the music.”-Claire Kahn
