Deep velvety purple.
I have always equated the color purple with royalty and velvet... lots of velvet.
To me it seems to be the most fitting color for velvet--more mysterious than red and more vivid than black. This brings to mind tufted upholstered overstuffed furniture of Royals.
This pretty Victorian hat pin fits right in with this line of thinking. While I was in my royal mood, this design came to fruition. It is part Victorian and part Gothic in presentation and coloring.
It seems I can't keep enough purple in my store. My customers just love the rich, sumptuous shade.
Maybe there is a demand for it and designers and stores just don't stock as much as they should. Or...there are purple lovers out there like me who scarf it all up when we get our greedy little hands on it!
Here is a pretty Victorian hat pin for your consideration. The design is constructed on a six inch gold hat pin. It is composed of several opaque deep purple faceted glass beads, a dark lavender teardrop bead, brass floral filigree findings and other assorted brass findings. A gold clutch is included for the sharp end.
The beaded portion measures 2 inches in length and is 3/4 of an inch wide.
The result is a regal scepter-like hat pin full of luscious purple color that will delight and amaze you.
This pin would be gorgeous on a winter scarf in jewel tone colors.
If you are new to the world of hatpins, consider their uses:
grouped together in a sunny location as sun catchers,
displayed on an antique vanity,
fanned out in a crystal perfume vase or vintage pin cushion,
pinned through a beautiful tapestry pillow,
arranged in a bridal bouquet as a keepsake.
Just plain beautiful things!
Your pin will come on a handmade jewelry card that has been tied with lace.
Thank you for visiting the studio today!
Much love and purple passions,
The Gaffney Girl
