In memory of a friend

About this design:

I made this for a friend of mine who asked for something purple and something with butterflies. The colour and the butterflies are both favourite things of one of our other friends that unfortunately passed away of cancer at age 27 two years ago.


12mm faceted purple line agate, 8mm faceted Amethyst, Butterfly charms, 20 gauge silver plated wire for the jump rings. Silver plated lobster clasp, silver chain.

    Love the overall finished piece! Those purple agate look so stunning against the silver. Did you get them from LB? What a wonderful tribute for your dear friend. I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your friend at such a young age, I’m sure you both have made her proud.
