Shantel's Amythest Necklace Set


About this design:

I talked to my friend I made the Blue Sodalite and onyx necklace for at Christmas as a gift and she must have really liked it because she wants to purchase one for each of her daughters.
Shantel's birthday is February so she wanted the amythest. I wanted to style it differently and in away it is but Ted says she asked it be the same. He would have it no other way. LOL

Components:

Rectangle Amythest,Black Onyx, Round spacer and rectangle spacer beads in silver and silver chain, 6 black seed beads, Silver lobster clasp from Lima Beads.

    I can’t decide which I like better – although purple IS my favorite color, guess I’ll pick this one.

    Thank you ladies. I know Sherry will I am not sure positively that Shantel will. She is 36. I guess that is the age Ravin is and she said she liked the Blue Sodalite I made Sherry. I wanted to put some pearls or just a different stone other than the black and Ted said I just wasn’t hearing. Sherry said the same. OK pretty much is. I squeeked in a larger chain and more silver. Yay!

    Sandra, you are soooo funny tonight. He usually says when I ask him which he like, “And so what does it matter you’ll do what you want anyhow”. Too funny!!

    This is so nice and elegant. Larger chain would be a dood idea.
    If I ask Ilkkas opinion from my works and he agreed with me I think ” what a good taste he has” but if he disagree with me I think that because he is a man he is unable to understand anything ;) , and I do continue after my own idea ;)

    I would have done a lot of things differently with this one; but Ted got very upset and said to me. Did you not hear Sherry? She wants you to make them like hers. Sherry’s is the blue sodalite I posted my second necklace I think. I did use a larger chain on this and tried to make it more choker length. I definitely was afraid not to put the lengthening chain on as Shantel is a very large woman. I wanted to use another color other than the black also but……..

    Thank you Sarah, Frida, Ravin, Lynn g, and Violet. I guess I should check back on my creations once in a while. These were very pretty stones. They really made the necklace. This chain is not bad either. Little closer than some and heavy.
