ZaniL Design- July Necklaces

Welcome to
ZaniL Design Jewellery Blog.

Well we are now in July and the first part of the year has just flown by. I do wonder where the time seems to go.

I know I spend quite a lot of time designing and making new and interesting pieces of jewellery and as the saying goes , time flies when you are having fun.

Purple is the colour of this winters fashion and that is lucky for me, as Purple is my favourite colour. I took the time to find out some interesting facts about the colour purple.

Purple is made by combining Red and Blue and thereby brings together the energies of both colours. Purple is associated with Royalty and in the Elizabethan Era only people decreed by the English Sumptuary Laws were allowed to wear Purple. Simply said, only people in the royal family were allowed to wear the colour purple.

Purple symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.

The purple color was produced from an extremely expensive dye called Tyrian purple which originated in Tyre in Lebanon. The purple dye was made by crushing thousands of sea shells - Mediterranean Murex. It took ten thousand Murex mollusks to make dye forjust one toga! This purple dye was worth more than its weight in gold and therefore came to symbolise both wealth and power. Production of Tyrian purple has now been replaced by cheaper dyes like lichen and madder.

Back to my jewellery designs for this month. I have made a few items in this Royal colour with accents of blue. Remember postage and handling are included in the price. Send me and email if interested in ordering to .
