purple vogue

According to Vogue, “purples are the coolest of all summer pastels”. So it is time to take a look at violets, mauves, etc in jewellery.

The obvious place to start is with amethysts. We tend think of them as polished stones or wire wrapped chunks but druzy amethyst gives the perfect pastel look as in this pendant by Frieda + Sophie.

And not all amethyst is one colour as in these Boho bracelets by The Purple Squirrel

Purple jade is another obvious choice, seen here unusually in a copper wire weave ring (White Clover Studio)

But purple can be found in other materials. Polymer clay is great for creating interesting pastel shades as can be seen in this Georgia P Designs statement ring

This piece is also polymer clay. The artist, Belkomor, was inspired by paper and you could achieve a similar effect by punching out paper shapes. Or perhaps try making rolled paper beads.

Resin allows you to mix and experiment to find the perfect purple as well as create interesting shapes as with these Simone Devine bangles

Or use whatever you have in purple. Buttons, peacock pearls and beads as in these earring found on the Funky Trends blog. Check out this week’s tutorial for other ideas.
