When I hear “amethyst,” the rich purple jewel tone comes to mind. But I love the soft lilac shades of pink amethyst as well. If your birthday’s in February, you can take your pick of the purple palette. Try adding lavender or platinum pearls — this elegant project is so easy, you’ll be able to whip up many options.
