February: Amethyst and pearl bracelet

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.



  • 15–19 mm amethyst pendant
  • 14–17 10 mm mauve round crystal pearls
  • 13–16 2–3 mm amethyst rondelles
  • 2 3 mm bicone crystals
  • flexible beading wire, .012
  • 4–5 mm jump ring
  • 2 crimp beads 
  • toggle clasp
  • 2 pairs of pliers
  • diagonal wire cutters
  • crimping pliers (optional)

Pendant from Chelsea’s Beads, Check your local bead store for supplies. 

Supply note: If you can’t find tiny rondelles, use 3 mm bicone crystals in light amethyst instead.
