The theme for this week's Blog Roll is The Color Purple, which just happens to be my favorite color. I've always loved all shades of purple, and I remember asking for a purple octopus for Christmas when I was 3 or 4. My mom and grandparents looked everywhere for a stuffed purple octopus, but never did manage to find one. Now of course I can just create my own, and I do have several purple octopuses made from polymer clay as well as plush versions ;-) I love purple flowers, purple rooms (Gramma painted her room purple and it's been that color all my life), purple dragons- you name it! I've noticed that I'm not alone in my love of the color purple either. Many artists will tell you that's their favorite color, and the members of the Polymer Clay Smooshers guild are no exception. Today I want to showcase some of the purple items the Smooshers have created.
This necklace from Valeries Stuff features gray, purple, and orange beads- a striking combination.
I just adore this Purrfectly Purple Cat figurine from TTEDesigns! It's my favorite animal in my favorite color ;-)
I love purple and black together, and Tonyas Treasures does it beautifully with this Purple Petunias Domed Pendant. The addition of a Swarovski crystal only makes it better!
This Purple and Green Swirl Pendant necklace from Sharp Art by Dawna reminds me a bit of a purple octopus. That looks like a tentacle to me ;-)
This pretty heart necklace from Second Sister MoArk Jewelry has several shades of purple in it, along with lots of great texture.
And finally, a whole bouquet of purple rose pens from Rosy Writers.
And those are just a few of the pretty purple creations from the Polymer Clay Smooshers guild. Thanks so much for sharing our passion for purple!
