The Colour Purple – with a splash of red

This is part of a series of posts about colour.  This month I am focusing on the colour purple.

Last week I introduced you to the colour purple.  I mentioned that a lot of colours worked really well with purple.  I have quite a few favourite colour combinations that I particularly like, but my favourite is purple teamed with some red!

All shades of purple and red (even splashes of bright pink), work beautifully together to create really stunning necklaces.

This is mostly because red and purple are on the same side of the colour wheel, so when you use these colours they work well together in an Analagous Colour Scheme kind of way!
