Three-strand Amethyst, Amazonite & Pearl Necklace (CG72)
Sometime ago I was commissioned to make a piece very similar to this and thought I would make another one day. That day finally arrived when I found these beautiful long African amethyst stones and the smaller rounded amazonite. The colours worked so well together and then I added in the pearls and - wow!
I love the resulting almost floral look; so light, delicate and pretty! I've knotted either side of each stone and used a white nylon cord which gives strength and durability. Should the cord become discoloured with wear, simply wash gently in a warm soapy solution and pat dry. That won't harm the silver, which can be buffed up with a soft cloth when the necklace is completely dry. This cleaning method will work for almost all of your jewellery.
The necklace is 18" (465mm) long and fastens with a simple sterling silver hook clasp.
A pretty floaty necklace to wear for that special occasion - wedding, birthday party, romantic dinner...
