custom work: amethyst project

A small collection of crystallized amethysts stopped me in my tracks at a show earlier this year.

These weren't just common everyday amethysts. They hailed from the interior of a cave in Uruguay. As if that weren't enough, they were from the interiors of stalactites (squeal!!).

I couldn't resist their otherworldly charm, and I purchased a few.

Moments later I called up my friend S., who loves amethysts more than life itself. She asked if I would make her a few special pieces from the stones. Of course, I said yes.
