Shantel's Amythest Necklace Set

About this design:

I talked to my friend I made the Blue Sodalite and onyx necklace for at Christmas as a gift and she must have really liked it because she wants to purchase one for each of her daughters.
Shantel's birthday is February so she wanted the amythest. I wanted to style it differently and in away it is but Ted says she asked it be the same. He would have it no other way. LOL


Rectangle Amythest,Black Onyx, Round spacer and rectangle spacer beads in silver and silver chain, 6 black seed beads, Silver lobster clasp from Lima Beads.

    I can’t decide which I like better – although purple IS my favorite color, guess I’ll pick this one.

    Thank you ladies. I know Sherry will I am not sure positively that Shantel will. She is 36. I guess that is the age Ravin is and she said she liked the Blue Sodalite I made Sherry. I wanted to put some pearls or just a different stone other than the black and Ted said I just wasn’t hearing. Sherry said the same. OK pretty much is. I squeeked in a larger chain and more silver. Yay!

    Sandra, you are soooo funny tonight. He usually says when I ask him which he like, “And so what does it matter you’ll do what you want anyhow”. Too funny!!

    This is so nice and elegant. Larger chain would be a dood idea.
    If I ask Ilkkas opinion from my works and he agreed with me I think ” what a good taste he has” but if he disagree with me I think that because he is a man he is unable to understand anything ;) , and I do continue after my own idea ;)

    I would have done a lot of things differently with this one; but Ted got very upset and said to me. Did you not hear Sherry? She wants you to make them like hers. Sherry’s is the blue sodalite I posted my second necklace I think. I did use a larger chain on this and tried to make it more choker length. I definitely was afraid not to put the lengthening chain on as Shantel is a very large woman. I wanted to use another color other than the black also but……..

    Thank you Sarah, Frida, Ravin, Lynn g, and Violet. I guess I should check back on my creations once in a while. These were very pretty stones. They really made the necklace. This chain is not bad either. Little closer than some and heavy.
