No, not that kind of purple heart!
This necklace was one of the first necklaces I've put together using a more "chunky" bead as a dangler. The photo doesn't show the color very well, but the glass beads have slices of iridescent purple in them, and the effect is dazzling. The glass makes for a heavier necklace, but not unpleasantly so.
Purple being my favorite color, it was hard to decide to part with this one, but how many necklaces can one have? Especially if said "one" has small children that prevent them from wearing said necklaces?
