Again you had me with the word purple. These are so easy I can't pass them by. I am going to use this idea but perhaps toss in a few clear Crystal beads. That will add a little sparkle. I know I will have to make a pair in blue for my friend. She will see these and go crazy. I just have to get her into making her own things!
