About this design:

I let myself out of bead prison and went to a gem & jewelry show on Saturday. Picked up these lovely faceted amethysts! "By wearing or using Amethyst crystals, you can become more in tune with your own feelings and get to know your inner self on a much deeper level. It is a gemstone which can bring you calmness, inner peace and is thought to highten your natural intuition."
What kept coming to mind was the spiral and circles, so I incorporated them into the piece.


16 & 18g non-tarnish silver wire (LB); 8mm faceted amethyst beads

    Stunning! I love the wirework, it shows off the stones brilliantly! I wish I could go to a gem show, but there isn’t much in the area I live in…ah, well. Someday! Until then, I’ll just be content with admiring others’ wonderful finds and the beautiful things they make with them, and keep shopping online! Keep up the gorgeous work! =^__^=
