Bias for Turquoise

About this design:

This exceptional oval turquoise was the perfect backdrop for a creative challenge of incorporating diverse beads, including my favorite Picasso beads.

After some pondering, I have taken the plunge and opened an Etsy shop:


turquoise cab, diverse beads, including my favorite Picasso beads,and braided turquoise and natural leather bolo cord with an antique copper-colored clasp

    Really cool color combo and the picasso beads settled-in nicely. I also love how you tilted the cab sideways a little, it adds “a little something” to the piece. Congratulations on your new Etsy venture!
