Amethyst pendant and the idea behind it’s making
This amethyst pendant was made for a small fundraising event with Markant Overijse. unfortunately, the event was cancelled due to the covid19 regulations in Belgium. However, not wanting this opportunity to raise a little money for a good cause and aiding the women at the beginning of the jewellery supply chain, I decided to sell this lovely amethyst pendant through my online shop.
All proceeds will go to Moyogems as initially intended.
The amethyst pendant
A lovely 4,53ct oval-shaped amethyst, in addition, it is responsibly and ethically mined. The pendant itself is handmade in Fairmined silver, mined in Colombia. The pendant hangs on a 40cm fine snake chain with a handmade catch which finishes the pendant perfectly.
