    Maybe you could make an "anything goes" strand. And if it was a bracelet, you could see them all the time.

    Thanks lol. You know the colors were inspired by an enameled ""Pansy" (at least I think that is what it was) brooch an elderly woman was wearing at the hotel I stayed over the Holidays. She was waiting the lobby with me. I was staring at it, and initially I was too shy to ask about it. Then she commented on my well behaved dog (which made me chuckle) and we chatted a bit. That gave me the courage to ask. She was a retired teacher from many years back and it was a gift from one of her students or their parents something like that, I wish I took a picture.
    I have thought about the colors ever since, now that I've done this layout I've not obsessed over it anymore. Odd really.

    **edit it was probably a Viola or Violet maybe?

    I was just schooled (though still slightly confused), Pansies, Violets/Violas are all the same family of flowers but this was never the point anyway, my curiosity and rabbit holes...sigh.

    Just part of my collection not destined for jewelry at this point . I had a tiny easel for it and sat on the coffee table, till a party guest knocked it over, now there slight crack across the back.

    Wow that's a fabulous photo of the Pansywhatevers! And I quite like that colour combo, something that I wouldn't have thought to put together . You have obviously worked through the purple/yellow obsession !
