A year or so ago, I made my mother-in-law a necklace with amethyst beads. She liked the necklace so much that she requested more necklaces in different colors. I’m always up for a project and was happy to oblige. From the beads I had on hand, I made her a Rose Quartz necklace (left) and an Aventurine necklace. I gave her the necklaces this past Saturday. She loved them!
Here is a close up of the necklaces. The rose quartz beads where smaller, so I used a finer silver and did more wire wrapping to secure the bead. The Aventurine beads were bigger, so I used a bigger gauge of silver and didn’t wrap the beads. All in all, I think they turned out well.
