Violets and Lace


If you know me even a little, you probably know that I LOVE purple!

So… I was absolutely powerless to resist this week’s color challenge over at the Play Date Cafe. 😉

The color palette for Challenge #5 was Purple, Lt. Blue, Silver and White.

Here’s my entry . . .

I used a pretty blend of beads here including:

Vintage Lucite “Icy Shimmer” Elongated Ovals available in my shop!

Vintage Moonglow Lucite “Paper Lanterns” available in my shop

Swarovski Crystals, Czech Crystals

Swarovski Faux Pearls

Silver Bead Caps.

These weekly challenges are not only fun but they’re also great for inspiration AND motivation!

And when you stop and think about it – what could be better than that? 🙂
