I combined two old broken necklaces and a few newer beads to create this sparkling amethyst necklace and earrings.
The inner strand of my necklace combines polished amethyst nuggets with imitation seed pearls and a variety of pink and lavender spun glass beads.
The outer strand has the same imitation pearl and spun glass beads, paired with small dark polished amethyst chips. I kept the old enameled pressure clasp with a flower design from one of the old necklaces.
The inner strand is 20 1/2" long, and the outer strand is about 23".
The matching lever-back earrings for pierced ears are large polished amethyst nuggets accented with purple spun glass and imitation pearls. The earrings are 1 1/2" long, including the wires.
This festive set comes in its own purple (what else?) silk pouch.
