Lemon Lime Turquiose and Copper Necklace


This is a necklace that I made a while back and thought that I had posted a picture of, but after looking at my earlier posts, I discovered that I hadn’t. The focal point is a cabochon of yellow turquoise that I bought at the Nashville flea market a couple of months ago. I just added it to my Etsy shop.

I went back to the flea market last Friday and loaded up on gemstone beads but now that I have them at home, I’m at a loss for what to do with them. Did you ever go grocery shopping and come home and fill your pantry and refrigerator and then not know what to make for dinner? That’s how I feel.
I’m hoping that it will all come together at some point. I’ll find just the perfect piece to spark a connection with the other materials that I have on hand and tada! it will just about make itself. Sometimes I think that I don’t really create the art, but the materials tell me what they want to become. Not literally, but it kind of works that way. If I try to force it, I usually don’t like the outcome. Maybe it’s just a Spirit thing.

    Another great setting! And the glass beads go so well with the yellow turquoise!
