I was out at the store today, so I picked up some Crystals dyed purple to look like Amethyst. I made a new necklace. I think this is way better. It actually looks almost professional instead of bad homemade. I'm a little sloppy when it comes to bending wire, see the bead pins, but these are only about my 4th and 5th attempt. My husband said he liked the double ring look.
