This piece began as a large bag of amethyst tumbled chips which needed to be used up.
I had plenty of fishing line, three-tier spacer bars and a normal clasp so I played around to see what I could come up with.
My design was based on inspiration from my mother as her birthstone is amethyst, so I wanted to make something special for her.
I started by stringing three lengths of fishing line by a crimp bead tip then adding some Swarovski crystals. I then started to string on the amethyst pieces and add a spacer and spacer bar (this part was tedious having to keep hold of the other two strings and also keeping the strings even).
The final piece ended up looking stunning.
