Sunrise and Sunset

About this design:

Posted this pair of freeform peyote necklaces to my Etsy shop today (

Bought a number of tumbled turquoise stones when traveling through San Diego this Jan and put them to use eventually.

This is one of my favorite color palettes. It reminds me of the beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the ocean.

    Very nice colors! And great bead work too! Are the turquoise stones drilled or wrapped in your bead work?

    Thanks all! The stones are drilled. I leanred to use multiple thread pases around them after the thread was cut by a sharp edge in another piece.

Add your thoughts!
