A gorgeous lilac landscape--this amethyst agate has mesmerizing striations of white to violet. I set it in argentium sterling silver (tarnish resistant) and added a lush fringe of amethyst rondelles and lilac shades of spinel--all set on silver headpins. The pendant suspends from a chain that adjusts from 28 to 30 inches. Please let me know if you'd rather it shorter.
I couldn't wait to add my freeform coiled wire wraps to these amethyst nuggets. The amethyst are randomly shaped and faceted and are a soft lilac shade. They pair so well with the gleam of the gold fill wire. No two stones are the same, so I paired them up in similar sizes and you will receive ONE of these gorgeous pairs. The last two photo groupings are meant to show the variety in shape of the stones. The amethyst are not flawless--demonstrating some inclusions typical of real stones found in nature--but all are beautiful!
These amethyst earrings dangle to a length of about 1 1/8 inches long.
These faceted drops of citrine are stunning! I thought the lovely sunny glow of these stones would pair fantastically well with the subtle color of polished aquamarines. I wrapped the aquamarines in gold fill wire to form flowers and added a cluster of ethiopian opal rondelles at the center on 14k solid gold headpins. The opals pick up the golden glow of the citrine below. All wire (except for the headpins which are solid gold) is quality gold fill. These earrings measure 1 5/8 inches in length. Citrine is November's birthstone--lucky ladies!
A collection of vividly colored stones are the focal for this cuff. I set a rare gaspeite (the lime green stone), amethyst agate and a boulder opal doublet in fine silver atop a base of argentium sterling silver. At the base of the opal is a tube set tsavorite garnet and a lush fringe of apatite, pink sapphire and more tsavorite garnet frame the base of the amethyst agate. The arrangement of the stones is somewhat flower-like, so I added a sprout of silver to the center.
The cuff is 1/2 inch wide, lightly domed and measure 2 3/8 inches diameter on the inside and 5 7/8" with a 1 inch opening for 6 7/8" interior circumference.
