    Your turquoise/bronze combination is really wonderful. I especially like the Tibetan horn pendant in the mix.

    Congrats on your idyllic turquoise POD, Judy! The colors of those African turquoise natural cut tubes are just gorgeous! I can’t believe I’ve never noticed them before. I must keep my eye out for when/if they come back in stock. I will pick up some of the beautiful Hubei turquoise. It doesn’t seem quite so expensive now. I’m in Penobscot Bay, Maine for the weekend and my mother took me to visit her jeweler friend’s (John McVeigh) studio/gallery down in Stonington to meet him & to give him my old student oboe, which he expressed to her an interest in learning, not knowing I had one. (He is a man of multiple artistic talents– he is also an opera singer that performs with the Metropolitan in New York.) His gallery was filled with the most varied & exquisite pieces, but the artist that blew me away was a woman from Connecticut who did the finest weaving in fine metal wire, some to frame cabochons, some cylinders bordered in fine metals to make focal beads or magnetic clasps for multi-strand necklaces. And the designs of the multi-strands were sequenced & varied so wonderfully. One of her necklaces John took out to show us had sections of gold weaving tubes connecting by an invisible magnetic clasp, with about 30 strands of tiny faceted (mostly) or heishi (a few) turquoise beads (looked much like Hubei turquoise) with some others, gold or a more shimmering stone, sparely added in. It was incredible. I happened to catch a peek at the price as the tiny tag turned over while he was putting it back in the case. It was $29,000. It is not likely it will be purchased by someone passing through Stonington, Maine, but you never know. Her work is of the precision and conceptual design to belong in a museum and was an inspiration to see today.
