LEED­ERVILLE jeweller Rohan Milne has sourced hand­picked amethyst stones for a pen­dant that will be sold to raise money for more breast can­cer nurses.

“Pur­ple has been syn­ony­mous with cam­paigns in the past, so I sourced and found some amethyst gems,” the Rohan Jew­ellery owner said.

“They’re not just stan­dard gems, they’re im­pe­rial grade and ab­so­lutely stunning.”

With help from Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group, Mr Milne will de­sign and hand make a pen­dant in the shape of an hour glass to sup­port the Buy­ing Time cam­paign that will raise money for Breast Can­cer Care WA and the McGrath Foun­da­tion.

“There’ll be two main pieces (to the pen­dant) and we might try and add some di­a­monds to lift it a lit­tle,” Mr Milne said.

The cam­paign in­dus­try leader said breast care nurses were so im­por­tant for peo­ple with breast can­cer and their ex­tended fam­i­lies.

“They’re not just there for the pa­tients, they help fam­i­lies with day to day life,” Mr Milne said.

Breast Can­cer Care WA founder Ros Wor­thing­ton of­fi­cially launched the cam­paign, which en­cour­ages em­ploy­ees at work­places across the State to do­nate an hour’s wage to the cause, on In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day. Visit http://buy­ing­time.go­
