The Final Piece: Turquoise

I lost track of how many times I pulled this one apart. And in the end simplicity won. I had lots of other beads on this ribbon choker. Large turquoise heshi beads, silver, jasper .. but it was just too heavy and threw the whole thing off. So one, by one .. I pulled the strands apart and worked my way back to even weight beads. It is just what made sense, and you gotta listen to the beads. 


So to finish this turquoise project, this necklace completes the set for my friend. She asked for earrings, bracelet and necklace. She picked the boho bracelet with the charm (I knew she would) and the elegant long silver earrings (check, and check). This was made for her son's girlfriend as her birthday is coming up next week. I hope she likes the set.

I like this one...it has a nice tribal feel! I understand the "letting the beads talk" that's how it should be with all creating! =)! Thank you for your kind comments on my Island Buzzy blog too! XO Connie
