Color Theory – Purple

I would like to do some posts about colors.  What they mean, favorite quotes and other fun stuff.  So they will be filled with lots and lots of pictures.  This week it is the color purple.

This is one of my favorite quotes about purple.  I heard it while watching the movie “Color Purple” and I believe it to be true.

This is my favorite explanation of what it means if purple is your favorite color.

I love wearing purple but it has to be the right color shade.

I do love working with purple components as well.

Here are some purple yummies from my friends.

Simply yes!

And this is my new favorite piece.  I came back from Beadfest totally inspired and with a tube of fantastic hex beads.

I love this pendant of Rebekah from Tree Wing Studio!  I fell in love.  I not only love the color I am a huge fan of Queen Anne’s lace.  I knew I needed to work with it ASAP!

So is purple one of your favorite colors?  Do you have a favorite purple component or design you would like to share?  Would you like to see more color posts from me?

    I always enjoy reading colour and colour-combining posts — not least when they're about my favourite colour. There's a lot of purple in new beads now, e.g. in Swarovski's latest launch for fall/winter 2015/16 (iridescent purple pearls and smoky mauve, which adds to their innovations for this autumn/winter which were blackberry pearl and crystal lilac shadow). Love it!

    One great thing about purple is the many yummy nuances, from deep warm aubergine to light, cool lilacs and from blueish indigo to rosy heather. I try to collect as many as possible in my pinterest board: http://www.pinterest.com/manekibeader/passion-for-purple/ (which of cause include Queen Anne's lace pendants from Tree Wing Studio)
