Marriage of Pink & Purple


About this design:

Again, the wonderful amethyst rounds from the easter egg hunt. I paired them this time with some lepidolite, rose quartz nuggets, a rose quartz focal bead (thanks again Susan) and the violet CZ faceted fan. Still not sure about the pendant... Is the CZ too much?

Components:

Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Lepidolite, CZ, silver clasp
