Amethyst Crystal Clock Necklace
I bought a strand of Amethyst crystal beads at the Bead & Button Show in Milwaukee. Here is one of them.
My plan is to incorporate some clock gears to make a necklace. I like the contrast between the gears and the crystal.
I made a bezel for the amethyst and cut sections of brass tube to use as a bezels for beads. At this point I have most of the necklace design worked out in my head.
I chose this particular bead for it’s shape. The bead hole is a bonus and gives me an idea.
This clock piece fits like the hole was made for it!
I just need to fabricate the clasp and then it is done.
