Purple gemstone statement necklace made with various shapes and colors of amethyst beads and one strand of amethyst fluorite beads. There are 8 strands on this piece consisting of: 4 and 6mm rounds and 15mm light cape amethyst oval beads, 6 and 10mm dark purple amethyst rounds, polished raw nuggets, purple bicones, and light purple column amethyst beads, along with the fluorite brick beads. Also I used Tibetan antique silver 5 and 6mm spacer beads. This exciting gemstone necklace is truly one of a kind and photos don't do it justice. Would make a unique wedding or beach necklace. The length is 19 1/2 inches and it is finished with bright silver color large oval link chain and a large silver plated heart lobster clasp. Wear it in a drape or give it a little twist for a different dimension.
