In a Turquoise Frame of Mind

As you can see I'm still fascinated by turquoise and these are some of what I was making on Tuesday when I decided it was time to play with clay.
These haven't been buffed yet but they are sanded as you can tell by the Band-aid on one of my fingers...I sand the top off the same finger every single time.
I have started the necklace for the pendant but I am almost out of the shade of turquoise I need....time to take a trip out to Wildfire Beads, Lora has just got her seed beads in and I know she has some Toho Treasures.  Much easier to match colors in person.

My first day of double classes today.  First is a basics class on right angle weave, then a break before heading into "Monimia" my cubic RAW bangle.
Between classes we'll be playing with the Sisterhood of the Travelling Beads Stash.


  1. Gorgeous beads Mikki...I'm a huge fan of turquoise as well!!!

    I look forward to seeing what you create with those beads!

  2. I'm into Southwestern style jewelry and of course I love turquoise. Beautiful beads!

  3. Gorgeous - are they cabochons or beads? Either way they are stunning and I can't wait to see what you do with them.


  4. Karyn...they are beads. The hole goes in where the black and white stripe is at the high point.
