Statement Necklace

Image Description
Ok, I admit. This one was for my daughter. She was going to be attending a wedding, wearing a fairly simple black dress. The wedding colors (which her boyfriend would be wearing, as he was in the wedding party) were purple and black. So she asked me to see what I could work up. This is what I came up with.... The necklace is three strands: one of chevron amethyst rounds, one strand of chevron amethyst rounds with faceted lavender amethyst, and a final strand of lavender amethyst small rounds, more chevron amethyst rounds, with a teardrop shaped chevron amethyst focal. It took a couple of "fittings" to get the strands each the appropriate length to lay correctly, but it turned out beautiful!
