Last week I had a lunch date down town with a friend and headed to my favourite treasure hunt bead store: Lenus Beads. They always have rows of un-named semi precious stones that even if they don't have a pedigree I still love and they always seem to inspire. This time I was smitten with these turquoise stones, they are either African turquoise or dyed howelite but either way they sang to me. I sat down right away and made three pieces........
First I paired this gorgeous stone with prehnite, amazonite, labradorite and pyrite in this statement crocheted wirw necklace. $35
Then I combined it with large silver plated jump rings in this bold stretch bracelet $30
I loved the look of the bracelet so much I made this beautiful necklace with the same stones and jump rings adding a sparkly silver plated chain. $32
I still have some turquoise left...who knows what it will become!
Just to round things out a bit I pulled out some glass pearls in the colour of the year and created this crocheted necklace....
Orchid glass pearls, flourite and fire polished crystals. $25
