Pretty in… Purple!

Posted by juliesjewels on June 29, 2011

Today I have a couple of designs in Purple to show you.

First up, is a bracelet that I created for the FaceBook event – Creations Color Challenge – Purple/Lilac and Black. – the event is now closed but this is what I made…

Lampwork, Czech Glass, Swarovski Crystals & Sterling Silver

The new theme is Black and White, I wonder if I can do something for that?

Also are these adorable little shell earrings.  These were created with the Wisteria image as inspiration.

Shells, Swarovski Crystals and Sterling Silver

Both items are in my Etsy store – Lampwork Bracelet & Shell Earrings

Purple Power

Posted by juliesjewels on May 31, 2011

Who like Purple?  Well I know lots of people who have purple as one of their favourite colours – I must admit I have a fondness for Purple as well…

So I’m happy with the way this set turned out.  Now you’ll notice that the glass beads look a little purple in one photo and really blue in another, that because it’s Alexandrite blue/purple Colour Change Glass Beads – I hope that will answer those questions!

So how about some photo’s

First up – the Bracelet

Now the Earrings & Pendant

These are all for sale in my Etsy store and they all have the beautiful floral Polymer Clay beads and the bracelet also highlights some lovely MOP beads.
