This piece was a commission for a friend's birthday from her husband. Since she loves purple, this amethyst with its bands of shades of purple and white was the perfect choice. Since she is a small woman, I kept the surrounding silver to a minimum. The stone is held in place with silver soldered pegs. My friend is a weaver so I made sure to weave some silver wire around a group of the pegs. The pendant hangs on a necklace of muted purple and brown fabric strips. It is finished off with a silver hook. Her husband surprised her with it and she later told me that I designed the perfect necklace for her.
