Purple passion

Lately purple has been my go to color.  Almost everything I make begins with color it seems to be my biggest inspiration.

While shopping I found this beautiful natural amethyst focal bead and I wasn’t sure what I would do with it, make something with it or just sit it on my work table and enjoy the pretty purple and white crystals.  Well after playing with it for a couple of days I decided it needed to be a necklace.  I started looking through my huge bead stash and found some awesome amethyst colored crystals,black onyx and pearls that I thought would flatter the focal bead.

I would love to keep it but I am going to list it in my on line shop.  Http://GingerbellsGifts.Artfire.com and until it sells I will be able to look at it and admire the lovely amethyst stone.
