Turquoise Jewelry and more



I have just listed some more items on my Etsy shop. Most are jewelry pieces.

Having lived in New Mexico all my life, minus a short time in San Francisco and Denver, I just adore turquoise. There is something so calming, so tender to ones soul when touching turquoise. I love working with it and these necklaces are but a few of my mania pieces. If you don't know, turquoise is not just blue....it is all shades of aqua to verdant green to yellow. Matrix in the turquoise is the host rock. The matrix also can vary from jet black to caramel brown. My very favorite combination is medium green turquoise with a lt brown matrix. There is something almost sensual about it for me.

I hope you will enjoy seeing these pieces of my work.
