What's It To Hue? Tuesday - Reveal!

Welcome to the July reveal for What's It To Hue? Tuesday!
I really enjoyed playing with purple. Over the years, purple has always fascinated me with it's strong tendencies towards red or blue...and how you can have a couple of purples together that just don't match! When working with these rondelles below, I loved the way their A/B finish showed off all their red and blue glory.

I've mentioned in a couple of previous Tuesday posts how when I think of purple I think about what someone once said to me about "in the metaphysical world, purple doesn't hold any negativity"...also about Grimace from McDonald's fame...about the purple Gremlin car we used to own when I was a small child. In addition, my first bike was a deep purple with a white banana seat. And I also have very fond memories of going to a store called Purple Panache at Faneuil Hall in Boston. Purple is definitely a good association for me! I like it!

How about you? How do you feel about purple? What's It To Hue?!


  1. Still a bit on the crazy side here so I didn't get to play :( I love what you made so sweet and gorgeous!

  2. Purple is my "go to" bead color as soon as I go in the shop...all shades, and if you look at my stash it is quite apparent. Weird thing is, I really have not used the purple beads that much, I was looking at them again tonight and think I have my color selections made for a new bracelet...with purple!

  3. Here in Los Angeles purple has a special significance in that it is one of the Lakers colors.

  4. Those are really pretty! So glad you commented on my blog so that I could find yours! Beautiful things you have my dear! I'm so glad you are in Annapolis! I was just telling my husband that I thought there was a bead store down there and I wanted to check it out. LOL. We will probably take the boat down one day during the week, I told him that was the only way I was getting on that boat!


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
