Amethyst dagger talisman
This piece was an exercise in patience and included a number of firsts in my development as a jewelry artist. The chain is fused argentium silver links woven together by yours truly. The beads are amethyst. The tube set stone on the bail is amethyst. The dagger is also amethyst. A word of caution: the amethyst dagger is brittle and there are two small pieces that have already been knocked loose from careless handling, so don't go flinging this across the room or anything like that. If it were intact, I would sell this piece for $350, but since the dagger is damaged, I'm going to sell it for $200. It seems like it would not be out of place at a Renaissance fair or something like that, but you can wear it wherever you want.
