    WOW! Betty, this is gorgeous! I LOVE these 2 colors together – the turquoise just POPS when along side the lapis!! Love the design too, with the multi-strands and the sections of chain. And then there are the earrings – LOVE them too!! Adding this one to my favorites for sure.

    Beautiful 3 strand. Love the turquoise and lapis together. Nicely done. How on earth do you find the patience to do all those tiny twisties to tie the beads together? Great job.
