Giant amethyst pendant

This thing is enormous.  But I love it.

The pendant is two and a half inches in length and width at the widest points and hangs from a hand forged sterling silver chain through sterling rivets.  The beaded wire around the base of the bezels is oxidized to bring out the detail and the rest of the silver is polished.

The clasp is at the back of the necklace so it can be adjusted.

I wore the necklace for about an hour to make sure the chain wasn't uncomfortable because I wasn't sure about those square links.  But it's very comfortable.  I like the weight of it. 

Too bad it isn't very "me"...I don't think I would wear it, so I won't be keeping it.  I considered it!
