This beautiful and delicate necklace was fun to make and is very unique. It would look equally spectacular with an evening gown or a v-neck t-shirt. First I wire wrapped a sterling silver abstract heart pendant with dark purple Swarovski crystal bicones and black Spinel rondelles, then added a lavender crystal pearl with a faceted Amethyst stone and dark purple bicone crystal dangle at the bottom of the heart. I then decided to turn it into a necklace by making one of my hand-formed and wrapped chains. The pendant attaches to the chain with an Amethyst stone and a handformed wire clover shape with (3) each lavender Swarovski crystal pearls on two strands from the pendant to the wire clover. Topped off with my hand-formed toggle clasp with an Amethyst dangle. All wire is oxidized sterling silver. Heart measures 3-1/2" long from the top of the heart to the end of the dangle and just shy of 1-3/4" wide. From the Amethyst stone that attaches the pendant to the necklace, to the bottom of the heart dangle, measures 6". Necklace chain by itself measures 20". The necklace could be shortened or lengthened but it might alter the design a bit.
