Chocolate Turquoise

About this design:

I like to pick up odd pieces at gem shows and then work them into jewelry. I don't remember what stone the large coin beads are made of. The rest is silver plate coins and clasp, Bali silver beads, and Turquoise graduated chips.

    Rainbow calsilica? That’d be my guess. :) WHatever they are, this is a fabulous design!

    It does look like blue sky jasper..but more of a green tint. Really lovely.
