I have a new maxi dress that has these exact colors. It would be STUNNING with this bracelet.


I follow you on google reader and I would wear the bracelet with a new summer blouse that I need to get made. Its a beautiful floral fabric with just a tiny bit of purple. The bracelet would be great with it.

My mother would love this bracelet. I would like to win it for her since she is 63 and does not have internet. She has lots of pretty dresses and loves amethyst, since it is her birthstone. (Feb)

I hope that is a satisfactory and honest answer. Cheers – Carrie
