Turquoise Majesty w Smokey Qtz

About this design:

This is a rather large chunky and long piece. I had intended to keep it but Ted said it is too large for me. Yes I think I have to agree. Not too large, I am just too short. Does size matter, well so the TV says, who knows. (only if you are maybe short and wide. LOL)


Large chunky Turquoise, Smokey Quartz, and New Jade. I used silver looking beads and little silver bead caps on the smokey quartz.

    Awwwwwwwwwwwww all the pups…so cute, they’re all maxed out, heh! This is a fabulous set, I love the chunky natural look of it! I guess I’m just wierd, but I don’t see how someone can be “too short” for jewelry, but then I’m 6 foot tall barefoot, so maybe I just see things differently. This is a Fave for me Miss Faith! I love it! :D

    Oooops Had one heck of a time getting the dogs off the design picture. Sorry. Honey get on your knees put on a large necklace and see if you don’t see the picture a little differently. Well maybe it is that I am too wide for the necklace and earrings. LOL. The lady at a ritzy jewelry spot in St. Augustine said to just put my earrings on a post instead of a fish hook. Well maybe?

    Regarding the earrings, I have found that more people like the fish hooks and leverbacks than posts.

    I love both of your sets, Faith !!!!
    To me, it’s what you are wearing . not what size you are as to which necklace I like better…. I am small too 5’2″ and I would wear either one… I tend to like the bigger one though… I like long necklaces …. I agree with Ravin, I wear what I like …
