About this design:

A few of my favorite things. Pearls, silver and turquoise!

This didn't come out as I envisioned it but I like it a lot. I know coral works well with turquoise but I wasn't sure pearls were.
My current foster babies (Queenie, Bella & Daisy) are below.
2 of 3 are spoken for. Yay!


Turquoise Blue Magnesite Nuggets, Swavorski pearls, SS clasp, Parawire which I love) Purple peacock pearls & Tierra Cast finding (LB)

    I love turquoise. All kinds. I have a very long one that need to be redone but I don’t know what to do with it. I just don’t have time to do anything. I am selling off some of my beads. I had a lot of destash beads in my shop and one person came and bought almost everyone. They were mostly reds and a few blues.

    But this is very pretty and very interesting. I used to make things using maybe only one or two types of main beads with some caps and now I much prefer a larger variety. This is perfect.

    Julie Shane says:

    Lovely combo of multicolored pearls… Pretty in that setting.
    Question!!! Who could possibly take 1 or 2 of those ADORABLE babies and not take ALL THREE!!! I know for sure I’d grab them all in a heart-beat.

    Michelle says:

    Very nice Peggy, love turquoise and this is very nice, as you say,coral works well with turquoise, as the native American Indians used to put these two stones together, but pearls are just as good and give an added lustre to the piece.

    Peggy3 says:

    Thank you ladies.
    Eeka mouse – I added the kitties as an after thought. And yes they do hide except at feeding time. ha ha
    Julie – don’t wont the last baby will go. They are only ready for adoption this week @ 9 weeks.
    Thank you Michelle – I agree the pearls add a nice lustre.
    Crazy beader – I’m flattered :)

    Peggy3 says:

    I hear you Granny. I am finally starting to use more than 2 colors. I have to keep pushing myself, what’s the worst that can happen?

    I gave the bracelet as a gift today to a friend. A very dear person whose path I crossed after 24 years (yikes – lol)
