Amethyst is February’s Birthstone. I always love to dig up something unusual, but this month, Amethyst stands alone. There is no other gemstone for February.
A lot of people love the color purple, and it looks fabulous with gold. I’ve been designing with variety of amethyst and tanzanite stones. My pieces are very earthy with the warm jasper tones that are a nice surprise with the sparkle of purple stones.
Amethyst is quartz. It ranges in color from pale to deep purple. Bands of color are common in specimens from some regions. Heating amethyst causes the color to change to yellow or gold, turning the amethyst into citrine!
Whatever colors I’m inspired by, originality is the key to creating. I strive to employ my best hand-picked beads in every piece. I want you to feel happy that you’ve made a personal choice when wearing and giving one-of-a-kind artisan jewelry.
