ArtFire Collection: Mauve-elous by lavajewelry & lovelythings

We had some unexpected & unseasonal rains here in the mountains yesterday... temperatures dropped to upper 40s early this morning. Very refreshing to say the least... brrrr !

Today is a double share of two Collections that came out on the same day themed around mauve as a color. I thought it would be interesting to see them together...

Even though both Collections feature a delicious shade of pink called mauve... they are quite distinct from each other stylistically. I do enjoy seeing how unique each Collection can be.

I dearly love the title on YOU LOOK MAUVELOUS, DAHLiNG and the Collection is beautifully delicate in its curation & presentation. I loved having one of Brizel Handcrafts' Tagua Nut necklaces featured in it...

"Brizel Handcrafts presents Rose n Brown, an Egg-citing pendant necklace and eco friendly jewelry product made from rainforest tagua nut, which is also known as vegetable ivory.

This is a one of a kind multicolored necklace, in tones of soft rose mauve pinks and light brown... a sweet combination to flatter ! Rose n Brown features a large egg shaped medallion centerpiece pendant, measuring approx 1 3/4" x 1 3/8". Each side has alternating mauve pinks asymmetrical diced beads (some of which still have some of the tagua skin) with smooth light brown pebble shaped spacer beads. The natural unevenness of the beads is what gives this necklace a special & unique charm !

Egg-citing pendant has been made adjustable and is strung on a dark chocolate brown waxed cord with a sliding knot... its ends are finished with light brown tagua nut toggle beads."

Here's a gorgeous mauve offering made by our curator: lavajewelry...

"I made these earrings by wrapping a single rhodonite stone in a herringbone weave using sterling silver wire. The rhodonite is a mauve color, and it measures 8mm in diameter. These earrings have hand-formed sterling silver ear wires, and the measure 1 1/2 inches (40mm) in length from the tops of the ear wires. I oxidized and polished the sterling silver to give it an antiqued patina."

MAUVE IS MARVELOUS is a fun upbeat Collection with humor & delight... a completely different feel to it... I loved looking through the products. One of Brizel Handcrafts' Silk Tapestry Boxes was featured in this grouping...

"Brizel Handcrafts presents Mauve Rose, a unique handmade decorative Silk Tapestry Box, made of recycled silk sari yarn, perfect for storing a small memory keepsake !

Mauve Rose is a sweet gentle fiber arts container, with a lid of its own, featuring multicolored tones with pink highlights and embellished with a mauve pink vintage rose button. This lovely Silk Tapestry Box measures approx: 3 1/2" in diameter x 2" high with an inside 2 1/2" in diameter x 1 5/8" high."

Here is a gorgeous mauve Sakura Omiyage created by lovelythings:

"There are dragonflies to be seen on the front of this cherry blossom omiyage. An omiyage is meant to contain a special gift, the kind of thing remembered long after its consumption- - - or, kept for a lifetime.

The fabric is a nice deep purple and the dragonflies are maroon. The leaves are vintage paisley and the tie ends are cotton. I collect unusual fabrics only for my omiyage. This sakura omiyage has a 2 and 1/2" gift pocket. The ribbon ends are a mauve corduroy."
