Purple is rare… August 22, 2017

While I do like an occasional touch of purple, mostly amethyst briolettes, here and there in my designs, I rarely veer this far into this area of the color palette. It’s always an accent color, never the main attraction.

When choosing some new seed beads for the class I taught last month, these really caught my attention to go with the fine linked silver chain I had already selected.  Thought I’d share the finished piece with you all.  I’m also thinking of shortening up the chain and adding a clasp in order to move the design up closer to the face .

It’s sooooo sparkly!

And goes so nicely with these earrings I shared with you in the last post.

Question!  Is there a color you rarely use in your jewelry designs?  Can you articulate why??  I really can’t say why I’m not drawn to purple.  I don’t have  any purple pieces in my closet either.  What would it take for you to try a rarely used color in your work?

Any thoughts?
