Sticking to the basics helps to make sure that our inspiration is clear, though taking chances can also have some beautiful results. I like to use purple when working with daisy patterns, and the little flowers could be seen as purple daisies, or as violets.
Today’s necklace uses both white and purple with daisy chain and daisy patterned peyote stitch. I combined one of my favorite color palettes, sour violet, with the design behind my harlequin necklace. This piece is a big improvement on the original, with a smaller bar and sturdier straps.
I know always using purple and daisies together could get boring any time, so today I had a look through some fantastic daisy photographs on Flickr. The colors, shapes and textures are so amazing! Here’s just a small selection of the flowery treasures I found:
1. Orange Daisies, 2. Red Daisy Close Up, 3. daisy, 4. Blue Daisies #2,
5. Cape Daisies, 6. Lazy day on a daisy, 7. Livingstone Daisy, 8. Daisy Damp,
9. Daisy Tell Me True!, 10. When all else fails, give the one you love Gerbera Daisies...,
11. Daisy for you, 12. daisy, 13. Daisies in Punta Indio - Margaritas
