I decided to cheer myself up (as the constant rain is becoming a little depressing) and make a new lilac necklace. I used lilac mother of pearl, amethyst, fluorite, amethyst chips, labradorite chips, blue chalcedony and some Venetian glass beads.
I have worn it already and am very pleased with the way it looks. As I have used the blue chalcedony in my design, I can wear it with both lilac and pale blue. Making and wearing it did cheer me up too.
