Purple amethyst jewellery set. Both the necklace and earrings have been made with amethyst beads and sterling silver spacer beads. The necklace measure 18 inches in length. I used purple amethyst beads and sterling silver spacer beads. They have been beaded into three layers. Each layer shares the same sterling silver jump ring. They are attached to a sterling silver necklace. The purple amethyst earrings measure an inch in length. I have made them with sterling silver earring hooks and sterling silver head pins. Amethyst is a meditative calming stone. It can be used to promote calm balance and peace. Amethyst is also the birthstone for February.
