Turquoise Blue

About this design:

"If cold December give you birth
The month of ice and snow and mirth
Place on your hand a turquoise blue
Success will bless what'ere you do"

Read this the other day. Since it's a bracelet technically it won't be on my hand. And I'm sure this isn't real turquoise, just magnesite but it is the right color.
Just a simple strung design but I do like the leaves popping behind the button.


Turquoise magnesite. Off-white unknown stone(magnesite also?) Turquoise color seed beads. Silver spacer disks. Silver rings. Silver charm, leaves, button, beads, jump rings. S-lon cord.

    What a sweet bracelet. I need some success and do have turquoise bracelets. Guess I’d better start wearing them on a regular basis.

    Great piece Deb.

    Love this design, particularly how the blue seed beads continue past the button loop.

    Deb, I knew this was yours without looking at the title! Love the little charm and that button! The leaves showing under the button is a fantastic idea! (I feel some thievery coming on) Where ever did you find that saying? I was born in December too. Maybe THAT’S why you seem to take the words right out of my mouth in comments sometimes. I was beginning to think we were long lost somethingorothers.

    Thank you everyone…you always boost my ego!! :)
    Gail I googled birth stones and meanings one day. Apparently there is a little poem for every month…I never knew that! I knew the ones about days of the week. Long lost something or others…that must be why your comments either crack me up or I totally get them!!
    Jane the reason I have cord after the button home sometimes is because I start the cord on the button.
