In a nod to the Musical legend, this necklace is for Amethyst lovers, celebrating it's more natural form, I have allowed this design to develop around the stone.
I have captured a large Amethyst nugget (1" tall by 3/4" wide) in a sterling silver cage which I have formed around the stone using the Viking knit technique to create the net. From this stone hangs a sterling silver spiral. The ornate bail is decorated with sterling silver beads and Amethyst ovals. The necklace is reversible.
The necklace is made with sterling silver beads and amethyst chips and is finished with handmade coiled wire loops, amethyst beads and a sterling silver trigger clasp.
The pendant is 2 7/8" long, including the bail and 7/8" wide. The necklace is 17 1/2" long.
This item comes in a jewellery box.
