I must admit something: I have never been to the southwest. I WANT to go, preferably during the winter, but I just haven't made it there yet. I know that parts of Arizona and New Mexico are almost overflowing with turquoise jewelry and beautiful hand crafted silver beauties. As a teenager, I was in love with southwestern style jewelry. T a certain degree, I guess I still am.
Although I cannot make it there for now, I have something that would fit right in.
I made this same style necklace last year and a friend of mine quickly bought it from my Etsy shop. That one was also blue but the blue was much darker, almost a navy.
I LOVE the turquoise color of this necklace. It's so bright and happy. I used 2 different sizes of seed beads to give it a little more depth. The little oval shaped beads give it character.
The clasp is something I love to use. Sometimes, fiddling with lobster clasps can be a pain. And for this necklace, the button just works.
It's a fun necklace to wear and it's a great way to add a great splash of color to a black shirt.
As with other things in my Etsy shop, if you like the design but would prefer different colors, just hop over and let me know.
