I was going to use Akoya pearls and changed my mind. I changed my mind because I am aware of so many people that are struggling $. So I decided to use one of my many high quality freshwater pearls to get the ‘look’ without having to charge the price.
Initially, I chose a much larger amethyst bead. But then, it had too much ‘dark’. These smaller amethyst beads work nicely. Although the amethyst is darker than I had initially imagined, the size fits the balance nicely.
Amethyst faceted rondelle beads, high luster freshwater pearls, top drilled faceted citrine briolette, gold filled components. The round ear post is nicely flattened for a comfy fit.
