This was a challenging necklace to name. Made from a light shade of amethyst and antiqued silver chain, I wanted to capture the purity of the stones and color. I ended up calling it Transcendent--in part because of the mystical nature of the stones, and for the essence of violet. Rise above with this delightful reminder that we can live above the fray.
I think you'll like it as much as I do and I'm not even crazy about purple. Lighter weight with the smaller semicircle of chunks of amethyst, and versatile with an adjustable chain. Necklace measures a full 19.5 inches but can be worn as short as 16 inches. I have the beads/chain to make two necklaces, so let me know if you desire a longer chain than this.
Necklace $37, Earrings (in a matching amethyst stone and Swarovski crystal) $13

Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love and procreation...who is supposed to have arisen out of the sea. The colors of these Arizona turquoise beads, luminescent pearls and clear rock crystal nuggets reminded me of the ocean. Beads are wrapped with antiqued silver wire and interspersed with hammered antiqued silver links. Meant to be worn long, this necklace is 32.5 inches long.

Coming back for a dip in the cooling refreshing waters, Magpie brings you Blue Lagoon. Soothing blue sodalite, peaceful slate gray freshwater potato and stick pearls, twinkling czech glass crystals and tranquil silver wire. This rendition of Blue Lagoon is 32 inches long--perfect for wearing at full length or may be doubled for a snug around the neck look.

White for purity, gold for generosity, my white pearl set is feminine and delicate. Something in all of us is drawn to Snow White for her goodness in the face of evil, and her ultimate vindication from the evil queen.
Snow white shell pearls are hugged by vintage bronze bead caps and end with sparkling Swarovski crystals. The crescent is hung from a delicate vintage bronze chain which has been finished with tiny white czech glass pearls. Necklace shown is 17 inches long. I've found that this is long enough for comfort and short enough for most dress necklines.
