power to the purple banner with ultra violet chainmaille designsInspired by the rich Ultra Violet Color Of The Year 2018 from Pantone®, Blue Buddha Boutique will be launching a few DIY chainmaille kits throughout the year in purple anodized aluminum or enameled copper. (The colors in the kits won’t be exactly ultra violet, especially depending upon the dye lot, but they’ll be pretty darn close.)

Every few months, we’ll release a limited-edition version of one or two of our chainmaille designs featuring purple jump rings along with accent colors or neutral rings in aluminum, brass, copper or steel. Some of the purple kits will be for newly released designs (Mngwa, we’re lookin’ at you!), some will be B3 classics and others will be selected based on popular request.

:-( Sigh. Just saw your email (from 22 hrs ago) about the Purple Power Mngwa kits being available again and ‘Boo-hoo’ they are all sold out again. I’ve missed it a couple of times now. Sure do hope you are able to stock them again.

On another note, I got some of those terrific 12 gauge 7/16″ X12 rings and made a bunch of Mobius Knot Earrings. They are super cute. Would you mind telling me what you charge for the finished earrings? If that is presumptuous of me, please forgive the question and ignore it. At any rate, thanks!
