It occurred to me recently that I don’t use purple often enough. It’s such a wonderful color, found in flowers and foods and summer sunsets. I’ve become determined to add a little more purple to my repertoire, even though I only have a handful of purple beads to work with.
Ring # 11 - Sour Apple Sweet Violet
My first attempt at using purple turned out a little on the green side. I started with one of my favorite shades of color-lined seed beads - wisteria. Then I started mixing up a palette, and ended up making a little patch of violets on a bright green background. I wouldn’t exactly say that this is a purple ring, but it does have a hint of it!
I like the energetic combination of wisteria and chartreuse so much, that it inspired today’s Poster Sketch/Treasury collection. To learn more about the artists behind these designs, visit Sweet and Sour.
