Jet Turquoise

About this design:

I thought of combining turquoise with black and silver for a different look than the usual pairings with copper, browns, coral or orange. I included various jet picasso Czech glass beads because the picasso is sort of blueish green which matches the turquoise perfectly.


Turquoise howlite focal, rondelles, heishis, onyx rounds, rondelles, Swarovski pearls, antique silver spacers from my stash. Czech glass from LB.

    Love the inclusion of the Czech Picasso beads! They give the bracelet a bit of a rustic feel which sets off the wonderfully chunky turquoise focal.

    Very pretty! As usual I’m mostly impressed by the construction of the piece! What is the base — wire, thread, something else? Like it!
