I had the most beautiful cut amethyst that my father cut for my mother many moons ago before he died. I've always felt so precious about it, not wanting to undermine its beauty and significance. Finally it came together in a beautiful pendant that can also be worn as a brooch. A significant piece of jewellery for my mom that she could certainly enjoy and be proud of.
I love this piece and its form that seems do interesting from different angles. It reminds me of my large lotus flower ring. And I've been wanting to make a similar piece for a while now.
