Jet Turquoise


About this design:

I thought of combining turquoise with black and silver for a different look than the usual pairings with copper, browns, coral or orange. I included various jet picasso Czech glass beads because the picasso is sort of blueish green which matches the turquoise perfectly.

Components:

Turquoise howlite focal, rondelles, heishis, onyx rounds, rondelles, Swarovski pearls, antique silver spacers from my stash. Czech glass from LB.

    Absolutely beautiful bracelet, and as you say, a different color combination – very sophisticated I think!

    Love the inclusion of the Czech Picasso beads! They give the bracelet a bit of a rustic feel which sets off the wonderfully chunky turquoise focal.

    Very pretty! As usual I’m mostly impressed by the construction of the piece! What is the base — wire, thread, something else? Like it!
