American Beautyberry Purple Necklace ~~ SOLD


 


The American Beautyberry or Callicarpa americana. I found this while looking for magenta purple flowers online. It blooms in Texas in late summer/autumn. The berries are edible and contain a natural mosquito repellant, to boot.

I wire wrapped these purple coral beads with soft gray 10mm freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and antiqued silver hammered links. Wire used in antiqued silver parawire. Necklace measures 34 inches. Earrings measure 2 inches. Right now, this is my only American Beautyberry necklace, but I might be able to procure more coral beads at our local store. These just came out a few weeks ago. I had never seen purple coral before and knew my purple-loving friends would definitely want to see them made into a Magpie:) See on Etsy here!
