So what do you know? I made a gorgeous pair of green amethyst earrings today, (a.k.a. prasiolite), and therefore I’ve finished the first month of my Bijou du Jour challenge. Because they are amethysts, I feel these technically work as a February Birthstone gift, and I’m sure they would be a welcome change for someone who doesn’t like purple.
I know it’s only a “minor” milestone to complete the first month of twelve, but I’m still heartened by this small success, bring on month two. 🙂
