Purple Royalty- A gift.


 I have just completed this bracelet that I call Purple Royalty for my wonderful sister in law,
Elise Jensen.  Elise has just returned home to her family from 2 years spent in Afghanistan working on women's education and health issues for USAID.


 This piece has many fresh water pearls, amethyst stones and vintage Czech glass beads.


 The toggle closure was made using a vintage gold tone metal button with a beaded loop.




 In August the family will be moving to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where Elise will continue to work with the US State Department and USAID on women's health and education issues.  My niece Kate, will attend school in the 10th grade and my brother Peter will continue his work with Peace Corps and teaching intensive gardening techniques. I have written several posts about my brothers wonderful work and you can learn more, if you are interested, here and here.

I am so very blessed to have such an amazing family. I hope that when Elise wears this piece, she will know of my admiration , love and profound respect!!
