In this period I like making necklaces above all, mixing materials and make them as colorful as possible. I noticed that purple is an evergreen colour. It can be matched with white, yellow (lovely contrast!) and green for example, and it really brightens any kind of hair/skin combination, from dark to light.

So I decided to create something special and the Purple Royale necklace is the final result:

I used felt, vintage buttons and green beaded chain, mohair wool for embroidery and brass chain. It took some time but it was worthwhile and this piece can be worn on a wide range of clothes to boost your look! In the pictures below I am wearing it on a dark purple poncho. Perfect if you don’t like to get unnoticed!
