Amethyst encrusted petite chandelier

Following up on my previous post Anything Amethyst!, I designed a powder room several years ago… 10 to be exact, and used Amethyst in it’s genuine form as accent colors on door, cabinet, & faucet hardware. I also used it as an accent color in hand painted Chinoiserie silver-leafed tea paper from Charles Gracie in New York. The inspiration all started from an antique French rock crystal and Amethyst encrusted petite chandelier I found in Paris. We designed the room around this and had the walls Jappaned a deep bottle green glaze. The effect was quite stunning and yet, peaceful at the same time. To this day people still come out of that powder room amazed.
