I had to include this photo of me from a few years back on this beautiful yellow chaise lounge in a French Quarter apartment in NOLA.

 

Sure, the color yellow can be mellow, but it can also be vibrant, warm, stimulating, and sunny! Yellow is a color that screams “summer”. It is the crayon that children use often because who doesn’t love drawing that big sun in the sky. Yellow is the color of stones such as citrine, chalcedony, calcite, jasper, sapphire, and topaz. Below are few of my jewelry designs using yellow stones, glass, pearls, etc.

 

Mellow Yellow

music and lyrics by Donovan Philips Leitch

I’m just mad about Saffron,
A-Saffron’s mad about me.
I’m a-just mad about Saffron,
She’s just mad about me.
They call me mellow yellow.
They call me mellow yellow.
They call me mellow yellow.

I’m just mad about Fourteen,
A-Fourteen’s mad about me.
I’m a-just a-mad about a-Fourteen,
She’s just mad about me.
They call me mellow yellow.
They call me mellow yellow.
They call me mellow yellow.

Born high forever to fly,
Wind-a velocity nil.
Born high forever to fly,
If you want your cup I will fill.
They call me mellow yellow.
They call me mellow yellow.
They call me mellow yellow.
He’s so mellow, mellow fellow.

Electrical banana
Is gonna be a sudden craze.
Electrical banana
Is bound to be the very next phase.
They call it mellow yellow.
They call me mellow yellow.
They call me mellow yellow.

You, ah, Saffron, yeah,
I’m just mad about her.
I’m a-just a-mad about a-Saffron,
She’s just mad about me.
They call me mellow yellow.
They call me mellow yellow.
They call me mellow yellow.

Oh so mellow, oh so mellow, oh so mellow.

 

By the way, there were many rumors surrounding the song Mellow Yellow, some about it being a reference to drugs, specifically smoking banana leaves or dried banana skins.  The song artist, Donovan, later admitted  the song made reference to a vibrator; an “electrical banana” as mentioned in the lyrics.
