Retired Purples

Pandora’s purple beads were some of the very first beads I bought. They completely clash with my Trollbeads purple beads, so I don’t use them very often, but I still think they are quite pretty. 

The barrel shaped bead on the bottom center is called Rhone by Ohm Beads. I though I was buying a much darker purple bead (it was on sale), but this one works really well with these colours!

It was way too cold to go outside to take pictures (-18 C), so I used out front window and put the beads on a piece of polished rock. 


I noticed that quite a few of these beads are still available at Perlen for a great price, if anyone is interested in buying them!

    Hi Martha!
    I follow your blog since few months: it’s really great how you combine different styles and the end result is always wonderful!
    I am collecting beads since 2 years and, as you, am a “purple girl” and love bright colors.
    I find Elfbeads glass beads perfectly suit the above targets and noticed that you have none, isn’t it?
    I could send a pair of them for you to try (without any engagement, of course), as they are really great.

    Have a nice day!

      Hi Serena, thank you for your kind words! How nice to hear from another person who likes purple. You are correct that I don’t have any Elfbeads. It is super nice of you to offer to send a pair to me, but I think it best I don’t get addicted to another brand! But thank you for your kindness! Are you on Instagram? I’d love to see your bead photos, if you have any!
