Turquoise Tear Drop & Gold $130.00 (Tin Cup Necklaces)
I have always loved the color blue, but I don't always like the blue that is found in turquoise. When I found this unique cut of tear drop turquoise, the first thing that struck my eye was the magnificent blue. I know a lot of designers use silver with turquoise, but this necklace with the brushed gold balls will make a statement the moment you walk in a room! I used a vermeil toggle clasp as a finishing touch.

Geometric Turquoise $100.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
This is really a fun turquoise necklace with clean lines & a little sparkle. The oval and rectangular turquoise pieces are delicately faceted to catch the light; I spaced them between Swarovski diamond-shaped crystals that add a deep, intense, reflective blue counterpoint to the turquoise. Eye-catching for sure!

Turquoise & Gold-Filled Beads $75.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
I made this necklace because a friend of mine is really into turquoise and gold and she told me she always found turquoise with silver and not gold. She settled for the next best thing - gold-filled beads and a vermeil toggle clasp. I liked the effect so much that I kept it as part of my collection and found others appreciate the gold mixed with turquoise as well.

Multi-Colored Pearls & Turquoise Flower $130.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
Given my affinity towards faceted pearls, I fell in love with the extreme variety of these. This strand exhibits colors of brown, gray, white, and green. I mixed a turquoise stone pendant with Swarovski clear crystal rondels and a silver toggle clasp as finishing touches. This piece is sophisticated yet playful!

Turquoise with Mother of Pearl $80.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
There is something so elegant about turquoise and white. I used a simple round turquoise bead and a beautifully carved mother of pearl pendant with a smaller abalone flower inside. A Swarovski vitriol diamond shaped crystal tops off the whole piece to bring the flower to life. The necklace is completed by a silver toggle clasp.

Hand-Knotted Turquoise $70.00 (Eyeglass Holders)
And once again, someone asked if I could do something, not only in an eyeglass holder, but with turquoise. So, I incorporated the round turquoise bead with these interesting copperish bali beads on hand-knotted silk thread.

Silver Chain & Crystal $85.00 (Eyeglass Holders)
So, not to be complacent, I tried using a fancy chain for the eyeglass holders and came up with this design. The 4mm diamond shape crystal with the bali beads adds just enough glitz without going overboard.

Turquoise Seed Bead $85.00 (Bracelets)
I made this bracelet with a friend of mine in mind. She loves turquoise and has been one of my biggest supporters. I combined seed beads with a few strands of turquoise. I topped it off with a triple-strand clasp to create a cuff-style bracelet.
