Any Way You Slice It


About this design:

I found the turquoise slices at a trunk show locally. I'm told they're from the campitos mine in mexico. I have a string of large and a string of the smaller ones. I knew I had to split them up to make anything I made with them affordable. This is for sale, but that hasn't stopped me from wearing it. It brightened up my basic black dress last week!

Components:

Mexican turquoise slices, turquoise rounds from the lbs, sterling silver rounds, golden pyrite ovals,hook clasp

    Jeanne, hi … you and I like the same types of beads! I got some like this in turquoise green and turquoise blue at the last show too!

    They were expensive and I love what you’ve done with them! SLS

    Yes Shannon, they were expensive, but so worth it!
    The show was in December – just before Christmas. My home show had been cancelled due to the blizzard and I should not have spent the money, but I’m so glad I did!
