Almost Amethyst

Time again for some purple! The True Beadz Almost Amethyst is a gorgeous, deep purple. It’s in the middle of the bracelet, below. It blends in really nicely with some of my Trollbeads and some of the True Beadz I have. 


Below left to right are Redbalifrog’s Fern Leaf, True Touch Lilac, RBF’s Frangipanis Forever, True Touch Royal Viola, True Beadz 2016, Trollbeads Aurora Flower and the True Beadz 3 Roses


Left to right below after the 3 Roses are the Almost Amethyst, Hyacinth, Trollbeads Purple Stripes, True Beadz Lotus and True Touch Purple Dream. 


Left to right below after the Touch Purple Dream are Redbalifrog’s Frangipanis Forever, True Touch Lilac and RBF’s Tree of Life. 


Here’s a close up the the 3 Roses. 


And a close up of the Lotus. 

I added the Trollbeads Ring of Change and Rosa Pearl Fantasy Necklace in for a combo. 


Here’s a last look at the bracelet. I’m so happy with the way Almost Amethyst fits so nicely in with the beads I already have in my collection. I’m sure we’ve all had that experience of getting a bead that we love but doesn’t really fit in with anything we already have. This is such a rich purple and blends well with other branded purple beads. It’s an awesome bead for any purple lover!

Here’s a photo for Kim and anyone else who is interested, of the Almost Rose Quartz. I’ll do a whole blog post on it next week, but sometimes it’s nice to be able to plan purchases.

  1. You have built a perfect Purple bracelet with Almost Amethyst at the centre. I love all the silver beads you have to showcase each purple bead, too. It’s a lovely, deep glossy bead and your Trollbeads on either side are particularly deep in colour compared to many I have seen. It’s just gorgeous all around!

  2. The Almost Amethyst was already on my wish list, along with the Almost Emerald and the Rudolph Red, but now after seeing your photos, it is a must have! What a rich, luscious color! I’m planning an order for when the summer collection is releases, because I must have some of the Gooseberry beads, but what else to get? Prioritizing is SO hard. I guess there are worse problems to have! 🙂

    1. Kim, we all must have wish lists a mile long, I think! Thanks to Julia, I have a LOT of True Beadz, but I’m also trying to prioritize a couple of beads to get when I go to Great Lakes and get to see them all in person. The Almost Amethyst is such a pretty, royal purple that I’m sure you wouldn’t be disappointed with it. I also have the Almost Rose Quartz which is simple gorgeous. The colour is unlike anything else I have but it’s quite mesmerizing. Here, I’ll add in a photo of it at the bottom of the blog post!

      1. Ooooh, thanks for the extra photo! That one is very pretty too, although I think I prefer the Rudolph Red. I love deep jewel tones. I was thinking I’d probably get lighter beads with my summer order though. The tentative plan is the Touch and Taste in Gooseberry and Blue Mist. And then I can get the jewel-toned ones for the fall. I’ll probably be attending the Great Lakes event in September too. It should be a fun time!

  3. Martha ❤ ❤ I am so absolutely amazed by this post! I'm like you a lover of purple)) and your pictures of this bracelet are so beautiful! The Amethyst has been on my wishlist by now but I've been unsure about the purple shade it has. Now I can see that the shade is just what I need. As you know I have the Almost Aquamarine, and I enjoy the translucent kind of glass used for this series of beads. I think I'll have to grab both the Amethyst and Rose Quartz in the end…
