Project cheer up mum

So as you all know I lost a friend earlier this week, I didn't mention that this lady happened to be my mum's best friend and an old work colleague...she was pretty devasted as you can imagine... so I thought she could with a bit of a pick me up. On my trip to Lebeado today (yes i go there regularly lol) I bought a few extra bits that weren't on my shopping list to make a creation that might just put a smile on her face for a while.
She's hooked on purple at the moment so I scouted around the shop, with the many jars bundled in my arms as always, looking for the right purples to compliment the beautiful pendant I'd picked before I thought out the necklace itself lol. I didn't want to overcrowd it as the chunky beads are quite heavy so I've used little knots to add interest to the empty spaces of the cord.
I've used:
  • Paua flower pendant
  • Purple seude cord
  • 2 Amethyst foil round beads
  • 4 filigree burnished beads
  • Silver clasp and chain
  • Silver jumprings
