JOY necklace

I had been thinking about this design for a long time. I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out.
The focal point of this necklace is a large toggle clasp, with a cluster of three faceted ametrine drops dangling from it on. The rare ametrine stone possesses delicate purple color, with just flashes of pale yellow within. All the other beads are amethyst.
I bought the ametrine drops on Etsy, and they are really worth the cost - soooo beautiful. But it is a delicate stone, and needs to be treated with care...
All the components are sterling silver, of course.
