Purple Scarlet Adornments
Tell us about your business."When it snows, she has no fear for her household; For all of them are clothed in scarlet. She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple." Proverbs 31:21-22 We cannot tell a lie—we love jewelry. It has been a hobby and passion for both of us. However, creating jewelry as a career never occurred to us. We kept pouring over God's Word looking for God's purpose for our careers. It was during these studies that the idea of Purple Scarlet came to us. The Bible has all of the precedents, counseling, poetry, wisdom and wit necessary to unlock every answer we need for every moment of our lives. So Purple Scarlet Adornments isn't about necklaces and bracelets. It is about reminders. Just as the Israelites were commanded to use tassels as reminders, our jewelry is meant to recall the words of God, the stories of his people, and to be a daily reminder that our hope and our future is in Christ. Our hope is that the beauty of God may adorn your world every day.
What makes your business stand out?All of our jewelry is inspired by the Word of God. Our prayer is that Purple Scarlet's jewelry helps to spread the message of the bible and can be used as reminders to those who wear it of the principles the bible teaches. To that end, every jewelry piece includes a scroll with the scripture and description. At Purple Scarlet Adornments we are proud to design and create all of our own jewelry pieces. As with any handmade item, there will be slight differences in how things are formed, forged and stringed (we aren't machines!). We also search for the best quality elements to achieve the right feeling for our pieces, and because we use many natural elements there will be variances in the beads.
What's the best business advice you've received?You will make mistakes, try not to repeat them but learn from them and be wise enough to know when to ask for help.
