Robin Eggs

About this design:

My nephew asked me to make a necklace and earrings for his girlfriend, Taryn. She loves the robin egg blue, turquoise blue, howlite turquoise blue....So, this is what I came up with for a young early 20 year old.


Turquoise Blue Magnesite purchased from a local bead show, Old Yellow Jade puff squares from LB, Antique brass pendant, flowers, spacer beads, jump rings and findings from LB...most of them anyway.

    Thank you NY Bella, Sue, Violet, and Lynn. My nephew likes it. I don’t know if Taryn has seen it or not yet. He’s buying it for her at a very discounted price! It will be the second piece I’ve sold.
