About this design:

This is a necklace i created about 2 years ago and just updated it a little. i replaced the silver tube beads(that rusted on me lol) with amethyst rice beads. i think this gives the piece a softer feel. :)

Components:

Sugilite, Amethyst, Tektite, glass beads and silver magnetic clasp.

    I love amethyst and I love simple designs. You would never think so with my trunk of beads but yes I love simple because that’s what I wear!

    I could wear your necklace to the grocery store, or to a party with friends.

    My problem is that I don’t ever like the amethyst chips I find. They are always caca. I’ll have to check on LB and see what they’ve got.

    Are those seed beads? If so, what color are they? I can’t tell from the pic. My GREAT monitor!

    Thanks so much, Scarlet!! Glad you like it! :D

    I also love simple designs and that is what I make most of the time lol. Yes those are seed beads at the top part of the necklace the tiny beads and they are black #11s in size. The chip beads are the sugilite beads which I got here at Lima Beads, then amethyst and tektite.

    And don’t worry I took the pictures with my phone this time so it may not be your monitor. ;)

    Ohhhhh, Vee! More beautiful purples! I love this design! You’re right –this does look softer than with the silver. Love your addition of the tektite pieces to your design — great idea! :D

    Thanks Lynn!! :D

    I’m almost glad the silver rusted, I think it was plated or pewter lol I think it looks better with the amethyst rice beads. :)

    Thanks Nancy! I agree sugilite is a very interesting stone, one of my favorite purple stones next to amethyst and charoite. Oh and yes I love magnets and magnetic clasps! :D
