Purple Throw Beads

Purple Throw Beads

Mardi Gras throw beads are traditionally thrown off of the floats during the Mardi Gras parades into the crowds which come to watch and celebrate the parades. These throw beads are collected and worn by the people who come to enjoy the festivities, and the unique and outstanding strands of beads are treasured as a keepsake. The traditional Mardi Gras colors are purple, gold, and green, and therefore the decorative palette of Mardi Gras is illuminated in all forms. Most throw beads from the Mardi Gras parade are strung with beads in patterns of purple, green and gold. Because of the amount of decoration flooding the festival in forms of confetti, masks, streamers, and especially throw beads, many people collect and layer the throw beads.

Another way to wear the festive
Mardi Gras beads colors besides in a pattern of beads is to wear the colors by layering strands of different colors. Strands of purple throw beads can be woven with strands of green throw beads and gold throw beads to create a thick rope by twisting them together, or they can be left as single strands around the neck which will shimmer and move as you dance and celebrate. Purple throw beads are a necessity for celebrating Mardi Gras as one of the major parts of the color scheme.

The traditional
purple Mardi Gras beads is a deep purple color, so the shades and various tones of purple do not really extend into the light purples. This purple color is usually dark purple but bright and vibrant at the same time. Because these beads are traditional in color they are usually sold in the traditional spherical bead shape as well. These purple throw bead strands do not usually deviate from the traditional bead pattern and color because they stand alone for just that reason.
