I'm going through a purple phase...

It seems I'm drawn to work with purple amethyst stones lately. I love the color. It's calming to me. This beautiful pear-shaped African amethyst is one I found at the gem fair last weekend. This is another new setting style for me. I've handmade the setting out of sterling silver (double-half-round wire) and tension secured it with a rivet. High shine polish. You can see more photos and descriptions in my etsy shop here.

I probably won't post anything until after the Thanksgiving holiday. Until then, I'm wishing you a blessed and thankful day.


  1. setting is prettier than the next. Are you taking lessons or teaching yourself. They are just beautiful.

  2. Hi Sandy, Thank you so much for the compliment! Yes, I'm taking a 2 month stone setting class here in Seattle. I'm loving it!

  3. What a beautiful pendant Sandy, I love the simplicity of this design.
