Pat was a beloved art teacher for 40 years at Shepaug High School and absolutely knows her stones. Pat always seems to find luscious stones she strings in unique ways. I know she is captivated by the cut, depth of color and texture - so each and every one of a kind piece from Pat is a statement piece. This necklace features natural Amethyst gemstones, nice chunky round faceted stones that move nicely with you. There is a nice sterling silver push in clasp, that not only is easy to use, it can also be part of the design. The design is asymmetrical and can be adjusted in many ways.
