Best of Art Bead Scene: The Color Purple

This post was first posted by Tari Sasser, undisputed Queen of Purple, on July 26th, 2007

This has nothing to do with Oprah or Whoopie, unless of course they LOVE purple too! My favorite color is purple. If they make it I will find it. Here's what I found in beading related items in the color Purple.

Artistic purple or Artsy Fartsy items to wear! You need to be comfortable and fashionable while you bead. So let's get dressed so we can go shopping!
Start singing, "Purple Rain, Purple Rain......ooow."

Purple Profile

You are a purple person if:

You are imaginative, sensitive,
artistic and sophisticated.

You have noble ideals and a keen
appreciation of the cultural.

You are alert, demanding, foresighted,
confident, resourceful, spontaneous
and highly independent.

You take delight in the beautiful,
the gracious, the sensitive, but
maintain an attitude of
critical appraisal.

In love you seek to attain a magical
quality and refuse to settle
for anything less.

You refuse to be "swept-off your
feet" unless genuineness and
integrity can be absolutely

You are active in the support of
things you believe in, and are
concerned with the pursuit of
truth and other human values.

You take chances and believe
that you must do so to make
the most of what life has to offer.

Purple is an exclusive color,
mystical in quality, blending
the two extremes of the spectrum,
red and blue. Traditionally, purple
represents splendor, dignity,
royalty, rank, and wealth.

Purple is a unique color, and it
is a truly unique individual
who holds it dear.

This post made my day! :)

With all the hectic muck of Christmas, I'd forgotten to get something for myself...I am now eagerly awaiting my sticker so I can stick it just above my beading table.
