(Patchogue, New York USA)
I’ve had these incredible Sleeping Beauty Turquoise beads for a while. Their matrix free, robins’ egg blue color is so intense they mesmerize.
Not knowing when I will find such turquoise again, I use my precious beads sparingly.
Because the color is so eye catching, I wanted to keep the design simple and added only a long tassel made with multi colored and turquoise beads.
It may sound silly, but it reminds me of Mexico, the colors I saw everywhere and ladies dancing. The copper wire lends a warm, sunset glow.
So these Mexican ladies are dancing at sunset.

I love the colorful party of beads you added to the necklace’s tassel – they’re a wonderful counterpoint to the brilliant blue turquoise.
And the warmth of copper is the perfect companion. I also like the connector you created to attach the tassels to the necklace!
