About this design:

I fell in love with Jane Myrsky’s work and thanks to Gunilla I was able to get my own pendant. She hooked me up with Jane who is as nice as she is talented!!
Took me a while to come up with a design that I thought was nice enough for it. And I thought of Violet while searching for matching purple beads, had trouble finding the right color too! I put in Jane's picture of the pendant, it shows the beautiful details. This is a keeper with this unique and fabulous pendant, which is even more beautiful upclose if you can believe it! :0)


Amethyst rounds, Amethyst SW Polygon beads and copper findings
