Birthstone Inspiration for February: Amethyst Violet Mosaic Pendant

February’s amethyst birthstone inspired pendant is violet and purple.  I always liked how the word sounded, and had no idea it was from the Greek word “amethystos,” which means “not intoxicated.”  Some ancients made the association that since amethyst was the color of wine, that somehow it could protect from intoxication.

The geodes that fascinated me as a child, with their purple crystal insides, were amethyst.  The outside was ordinary rock, and broken open to reveal a whole magical world inside.

If February is your month, or you love purple, I’d be glad to make one for you.

    Mosaics are so pretty and I enjoy anything birthstone related. My girls gave me a mother’s ring for a Christmas gift. Such a thoughtful gift for moms.
    Visiting from SITS. Nice to meet you!

    I love love love your work. I also see a mosaic mondala off to my right there and I am truly in love. I will someday create a mondala on a table with the beloved shards of memories I hold on to from my friends, family, and times of my life. Someday, even if it is after my kids are grown and gone.

  3. Melody–I’m so glad my work resonates with you! Yes, make a mandala to hold your beloved shards of memory! It is a wonderful thing to incorporate them into a whole, a tribute and treasure.
