Ornament Thursday: Heliotrope by any other name is my favorite color (Purple)

ornamentbanner150It’s Ornament Thursday again!

The theme this month is “Heliotrope”, which I was pretty sure was a shade of purple. In fact, it’s a “light tint of purple”. I immediately thought of these beads, which I made into this fun necklace. Susan Sheehan made these pinwheel glass beads and I’ve loved the color. But then I am a fan of purple in all shades.

It looks more light purple in person so blame my photo skills. The glass “wheel” beads are just a lot of fun. But then when I was looking further, I thought maybe Heliotrope is more like this color:

More of Susan’s beads in a whimsical pair of earrings. You just can’t help but smile at purple. And these beads are probably truer to looking like the flower in the heliotrope plant.

In case you have doubts, here’s a true heliotrope plant. Looking at it, I guess the color is somewhere in between both of my examples. :)
