Provence Lavender - Chrysolite Blend Inspiration

Provence Lavender - Chrysolite Blend Inspiration

Often you will find that a shape or a single colour is the starting point for your inspiration. It usually is for us! Here in this montage we went with the starting shape, which was the lovely teardrop jewel from Swarovski. Then, cueing off the colours in that jewel we went through the greens and purples and added in elements to create depth and 'punch' with the darkest hues in the picture - of Heliotrope and Purple Velvet. Adding elements with differing textures is our favourite approach these days too - so pearl finishes definitely have their place in these arrangements. Hope you like our creative arrangement around these beautiful jewels!

"Hi Donna,I just want to say thank you for our recent delivery. We absolutely love opening our package and marvelling over the fancy items! I especially like how you put a personalised short note and include the original order checklist. The checklist makes it easier to look over things and start planning applications. We ordered turquoise motifs and the quality, thickness and finish of them is exceptional. I only wish you could find more colours, I am totally addicted now :). Thank you once again and we look forward to placing our next order. Best wishes from S. and my 2 dancing girls. xxoxx"
