All About Purple!

I am a member of the EtsyBloggers street team and twice a month the members are asked to blog about their choice between two options. This event is called a Blog Carnival.

The choices for this Carnival are to blog about a contest or challenge I was in or how my favorite color is incorporated in my work. As is obvious from the title of this post, I chose to blog about my favorite color and how it is used in my work. Since I am new to the team, this will be my very first EtsyBloggers Blog Carnival!

Since my favorite color is purple and I love animals, I tend to mix the two quite a bit when creating new pieces for our shop. I love cat's eye beads so it's only natural that I'd make this Purrple Kitty bracelet currently in our shop.

I also used the purple cat's eye beads to make these sweet and simple Purple Passion earrings. And I also used purple cloisonne butterfly beads in this Purple Cat's Eye Butterfly Bracelet.

Now you know a little more about my favorite color and how I incorporate it into our shop. My mom is my shop partner and she's also created many lovely purple items too. Click here to see everything purple that we have listed in our BeadedTail shop!

I love the use of cat's eyes with a cat bead! Awesome! I don't know if any one other than us jewelers will appreciate that - but it rocks! I also love the butterfly - so pretty!

Hi there!
Fellow EC member here.

I love those beads too! And how you are using your talent to help animal shelters! I have been thinking about trying something like this here in Italy too. Once I have started my new job and life settles down a bit I will look into it.

Have a super Sunday!

I love the love of your work Sharla. I have added some of the causes from your blog to mine. Hope this helps. And, you have been an inspiration to donate in a more significant way (than randomly), even though the drops to the local shelter may be small I have learned that a dripping faucet can produce quite a lot of water overnight.
