I've had this necklace in my head for quite a few months, and I finally got all the bits together to make it. I started with a strand of lovely pale Blue Chalcedony puffed diamonds, then added pale Pink Amethyst faceted coins and Tanzanite smooth rondelles in an alternating pattern. I liked the look of a two-strand necklace, but wanted a focal as well, so I used a fancy filigree drop and did a bit of wire-wrapping of light Amethyst, natural Chalcedony, and Tanzanite rondelles. Tiny sterling silver round beads and beaded rondelles give the necklace a bright shine. The necklace is on stranded silver wire and is finished with a sterling silver toggle clasp. All metal is sterling silver. The lower strand is 20 inches long, while the upper addition makes the necklace approximately 18 inches long. The focal with wire-wrapping is approximately a 1-1/2 inch drop. This necklace was a joy to make, and is all pale sparkle and loveliness!

I had a bit of difficulty getting a good picture of this necklace. We had one sunny day last week so I took it outside and held it up to the light to try to get true color and sparkle - this is the first picture.
