Dancing Crystal Amethyst Necklace

by Michele Rose

You can't help but catch the sparkle from the 5mm Swarovski Amethyst beads as you dance about in this flowing amethyst colored necklace.

The Sterling Silver Bar and Link chain curves nicely around the collarbone and is very fun to work with and although Amethyst is traditionally the birthstone for February, the rich color is so versatile it can be worn all year. The Dancing Crystal Amethyst Necklace kit comes together in four easy steps.
