This necklace features a dark purple amethyst bead as its focal point. I have wrapped the bead in sterling silver wire and then used the wire to lash Swarovski crystal bi-cones and glass beads around the wire. This forms a beautiful frame around the amethyst. The beaded part of the necklace is made of swarovski crystal, glass beads, and quartz crystal chip beads. I have strung them on quality beading wire and finished it off with a silver plated hook clasp. The necklace in 15 inches in length.
