I got this big green turquoise nugget as a part of a set of coordinating beads. I used the other beads in some other projects, but could never decide to do with this bead. It’s chunky and textured and a great colour, and it took me ages to figure out what to put with it. Turns out, it needed to go with some smoky quartz chips and a great silver toggle clasp.
After making the magnesite necklace from yesterday, I had some beads left over. Today I used those up and had enough to make a bracelet as well as a pair of earrings. For the bracelet, I went with a magnetic clasp, since toggles are cute but can be hard to do up by yourself. The earrings are trios of the turquoise-coloured magnesite, attached to a series of small rings. The effect is that they hang in graduated heights, much like these pearl earrings (same design, different beads).
Also, the photo isn’t the greatest. This is why it’s not ideal to shoot in extremely bright sunshine – the shadows can be distracting and the colour isn’t quite right. Still, imagine the soft turquoise and creamy white of the necklace, and you’ll get the idea. 🙂
