Inspiration Board: Turquoise

My last couple of blog entries have been about creating a jewelry turquoise series. I have already created a couple of bracelets, several pair of earrings which I'm revealing today. They range from a rustic Boho rough cut stone, to a more elegant silver cone pair to one of my favorite pearl drop styles. I still have a few more on the table that are in need of inspiration, and so I set it aside for now and went surfing. 


Sometimes I just need to look at pictures, and lately I've been turning to Pinterest to wash me over with color and style. This is the Inspiration Board I created from my Island Life board (you'll find my button on the right if you want to follow me and see more), or if you prefer to pin your own you'll find these pictures from a great collection I found on tumblr.


I still have more to come in my turquoise quest. There will be a few more pairs of earrings and a necklace. The necklace is pinned in place on the beading table for now. I've changed out the beads at least 3 times, but I think I finally have a pattern I like. So after a lovely day in this beautiful sunshine I'm heading back to the beading table to power through completing it. I'll show you the final version later in the week. So check back and let me know what you think.

I tend to just think of the southwest when thinking of turquoise but I like your idea of tropical waters much better!

Thanks all - the ones in the middle were designed by my youngest daughter. She'll be thrilled to hear you all like her pattern!
