People don’t sell beads, beads sell themselves.  Especially February’s birthstone, amethyst!

    I especially like that last bracelets, not least as the colours remind me of a flavour combination I love in candy and chewing gum: violets and licorice. 😀

    I think Swarovski’s dorado mixes nicely with amethyst and purples. That combo is also candy related: purples and bronze (plus a touch of black and white) are the colours on the boxes for Violtabletter, a type of violet-flavoured pastilles I like. There’s a photo of the box here:

    Otherwise, I like mixing amethysts as well as many other purple beads with copper and browns. Or perhaps and some green, especially olivine or moss greens. Very traditional colour combos, but I like it. Or I add a touch of papaya or padparadscha.

    I have a question about resins. Do you know of a one-step resin that’s just come on the market? I got an email about it, erased the email, and now can’t find any info on the new product. Thought you might know.
