February's birthstone - Amethyst

1st February and time to look at the birthstone of the month  -  AMETHYST.

It is said that .....

Amethyst is a powerful aid to creative thinking, spiritual awareness and healing. It is believed to ease headaches, relieve pain and help combat insomnia. ......  I wonder if wearing a bracelet in bed will help with my insomnia?

This gem is a favourite for many folks and always sells well!   I love the colours and shades - it can be anything from a lavender to a deep purple. My wardrobe consist of lots of black and grey clothes and so it is a useful accessory in my beady box, but also you can wear these colours with cream, white, and pink.

Is it any wonder that this stone is so popular - and since it is my friend's birthday this month I thought she might like a little gift.  I have kept the design simple as she like delicate jewellery.

and then I made a pair for myself......

 The earrings are made with sterling silver hooks and 6mm amethyst round beads.
