Alzheimers Awareness Amethyst Necklace

All proceeds will be donated to the Alzheimers Association.

When my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimers 35 years ago I was exposed to the heartbreaking and long-lasting impact this disease has on families and loved ones. My father succumbed to the same disease this last year.  

The Alzheimer's Association is the largest non-profit funder of Alzheimer's disease research. Its mission is "to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

So why is purple the official color of the Alzheimers Association. I found this reference online and thought it was perfect for a jewelry application. "In the rainbow, the color purple is the only color that is split into two shades: Indigo and Violet. These two purple shades represent chakras or energy points in the the head. Indigo is associated with intuition, perception and the higher mind. Violet is associated with the color of creativity and spirituality."

About the necklace :)  

Beautifully faceted amethyst hangs from a sterling silver hand made framed heart.  A sterling silver delicate beaded chain can be worn at 16 or 17 inches.  

Remember your loved ones that were lost to this disease by adding "MOM" or "DAD", or perhaps their initials to the back.  

Please send me a note to indicate what you would like on the back.  Only three letters max......
