Amethyst Amulets

About this design:

I've had this teardrop in several designs and had to restring because each design didn't do it justice. This one is a forever design. I don't even know what it is: glass, ceramic, fluorite?? I think I got it at Wally world a 100 years ago, as my mother says.
The pearls made it lighter and the amethyst rondelles give it a punch of color!


Lavendar glass pearls, Chevron amethyst, purple fluorite, rainbow fluorite, pewter bead caps, hook & eye clasp. Bracelet has the addition of purple velvet glass bicones.

    Has a very “royal” look to it. Something for a formal occasion. Your design shows off the purple (lavender?) teardrop very well. Could it possibly be amethyst?

    Oh my!! I agree with Gail L. It does have an antique look. Very elegant and soft. The colors are wonderful. I’d love to see that focal under a magnification lamp. It makes me crazy,when I can’t identify something. (Not that I’m qualified anyway…just obsessed.) ;)
    Oh,and rainbow flourite..yum!
