I’ve kept this bracelet simple by just threading lavender amethyst rounds and a large sterling silver bead on elastic cord. The silver bead is a focal point and useful for covering the knot in the elastic. It measures about 7.5 inches. (19 cms)
Amethyst, February’s birthstone, is a very popular gemstone – both due to its beauty and its many healing properties. Known as “nature’s tranquilizer”, it is said to be calming, protecting and to reduce stress. Amethyst is also believed to be good for the heart, skin and lungs – and to ease headaches and other pains, arthritis and insomnia.
