I spent some time this week making jewelry. The fall gem show was here at the beginning of September, and I went on a small buying spree. I always check out the guys from the Kingman mine. The Kingman mine has a variety of turquoise, from the vibrant blue that I just love, to a beautiful subtle green. I bought a gorgeous strand of 8mm rondells in a beautiful blue. And a graduated strand of blue with a black matrix. And a couple of blue-green heshi strands.
So I made this with the blue turquoise
The accent beads are purple jade, from Turkey, and are really lovely!
This is the necklace I made with the strand of graduated beads, with matrix. Accents are Bali sterling silver.
A special order for one of my farmers market customer - she was looking for a plum/purple color necklace to wear to a wedding next month. She found an amethyst bracelet that she thought would match, and ask if I could make a necklace just like it. Fortunately, I had plenty of the beads so this is what I made
She just called a while ago to let me know she received it, and that it is perfect!! :-D That's what we like to hear!!!
