Ultra Violet Color of the Year 2018 January 06 2018
Purple is my favorite color, but true "ultra-violet" is something so magical and exciting to me personally as it is one of the hues of the ultra violet spectrum that I use in my work.
"Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own."
My ultra violet glows in the dark after being worn in direct sunlight and is stunning.
"Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets."
If you look around my shop you will find quite a few ultra violet glow necklaces. I use true violet spectrum in my glowing designs and it looks marvelous when charged in direct sunlight.
