“turquoise hybrid”


Description from Kate: This looks like your typical 'turquoise & copper' pick... But I started by considering those new TOHO hybrid beads. I wanted to see what might compliment the Turquoise Apollo Hybrid beads. Funny how just a tad of contrasting color can change your bead-- TOHO does a great job of that with all the linings and finishes. The new Hybrid technique is a whole new world!

    Thanks ya’ll. Anyone else thinking about that Ezel big bird laying a giant turquoise-groovy-oval egg?? hahah. I’m cracking up, just noticed it…

    You are my first favorite fresh pick. I like the basic needs like the wire or patinas along with the stone and beads. Just a bunch of pretty beads doesn’t make a wonderful necklace anymore, it’s how it is put together. This is a very usable and balanced pick.

    Irresistible, Kate! Wonderful textures, colors and shapes!
    And of course, you’ve used three of my all time favorites; birds, copper and turquoise! :-D
    I think we should put an egg under that Ezel bird and see what it looks like! lol! ;-)

    Very nice pick Kate. Teal and copper are perfect. I have the little Ezel bird. I used him with amazonite and it’s so pretty.
    Personally, I’m crazy about the frosted opal apollo hybrid. glad it’s back in stock.
