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!
