"Eat your greens!", we have all heard that from our mothers at one time or another as we sat at the table with a mountain of green "stuff" pilled on our plates. Some definitely looked more appetizing than others.
I actually LOVE brussel sprouts. I can hear the Yuks now from you, but my mother served them fried with bacon and served in a delicious light white sauce, clever mum ( and no, we were not fat in those days). So, not all greens are equal are they?
As I was fossicking yesterday through my semi precious stone stash, looking for inspiration, I found some beautiful irregular faceted subtle Green Amethyst that I had quite forgotten about.
I had a light bulb moment and went straight to my bench. It didn't take me long to decide what I would do with these beautiful subtle green stones. I decided to oxidize the silver to make the green pop, and added some 14K Gold Filled wire as a contrast.
