Divine Turquoise

About this design:

I made this chunky necklace for myself. I had this huge lodolite pendant and added another lodolite bead from my LB stash to make it especially huge. I probably need to take lessons in photography because I can't seem to capture the beauty of my readymade pendant..(sigh....).


Turquoise Magnesite briolettes, Turquoise chips, lodolite pendant, Marcasite toggle clasp...

    Very pretty. Great design! Love it! The photo thing can be a real pain! I find outside in the morning (before it’s too bright) or in the evening light seems to best capture the true color of things.

    Wow. OK, so i LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! I love the subtle color contrast between the drops & the chips. It makes them both “pop” beautifully. Somehow this piece comes off as both very bohemian and very glamorous at the same time! You could wear with a white tank top & jeans or with a fancy little black dress.

    Amazing job!!!!!!! :)
