Three More to Go

When I went to the bead show last month, I got two rough cut amethyst pendants to make necklaces for 2 on my gift list. They were very inexpensive as they are rough cuts with imperfections - but I thought they were pretty.
In the works.................
I also used some silver plated filigree beads and very light purple fluorite (?) nugget beads, and came up with this design. I have a ? mark beside fluorite, because they were not labeled and I failed to ask the vendor what they were. Hate when I do that, as I am not knowledgeable enough when it comes to gemstones. Anyone know if that is what they are?
Anyway - Finished product ...........

Still have three more necklaces to make this week (not like this), finish a menu and shopping list for a house full, change bed linens in the guest room, etc., etc. Bottom line - I need to get busy - and why am I on the computer ?!?!

Thank You Ladies for hosting events - You are appreciated.
Hope you are having a great week.

Here I am on the computer too and I need to be BUSY!
Love the pendants ... amethyst is my birthstone and I am always drawn to the color purple ... wonder why! You do an amazing job with your pieces.
Enjoy your holidays. I know it has been a rough last few months.
Big Hugs,

These are gorgeous Glenda. I love the large amethyst stones. Not real sure what the other stones are, but they're sure pretty with the amethyst. So good to see you creating jewelry again.

I think these are really pretty. I love the unusual shape and color. You are going to make a couple people very happy. I'm spinning my wheels here too. I have been baking, wrapping and finishing up things. We have to have things ready by Friday night, so I'm not on the computer nearly as much as I'd like to be! I finally have things to post about and no time to write or read!
