"Soul of the Southwest"

CUSTOM JEWELS - SOLD. Turquoise magnesite ovals; sponge coral heishe; ss daisy spacers & beads; ss Southwestern-style lizard toggle clasp; ss findings.

 

Turquoise magnesite from Magpie Gemstones; sponge coral heishe from the Rings & Things Trunk Show, Atlanta 2010.

 

A very talented Flickr friend, Vicki, asked me to design a Southwest inspired necklace for her. She had seen the turquoise magnesite used in "I Fiore del Mare" and really liked it. And then she sent me a pic of the color of coral she wanted, more the orange, not the red. After a few mock-ups, this is the classically simple design that she loves :) It's going out in the mail tomorrow to her. Hope Vicki gets much pleasure from wearing "Soul of the Southwest" for many years to come!!!
