Amethyst Necklace





I just made this necklace tonight. It was a bit of an experiment, I did the wire wrap dangles, but then I added tiny 2mm fluorite beads along the edge of the chain by sewing/weaving it in with 30 gauge sterling wire. I think it turned out pretty neat! I'll wear it for a while to see how well it holds up. :)

I love garnets & pearls. In fact what do I not love. But Amethyst has that 'striking' colour. Less complicated than your "Evening Falls" bracelet earlier, but has that simpler elegance. Sure it looks good on your neck too. Q

So, how did it hold up? Q

Not too bad, I didn't tuck the wire in well enough at first so it started poking me in the neck, but that was easy to fix, but for some reason I'm still not thrilled with this necklace. I've put it aside for now, waiting for some fresh inspiration!
