Turquoise

Turquoise

While it is most commonly associated with Native American craftsmen working in sterling silver, I love the turquoise set in 18K gold. I recently purchased a few fine pieces from The Sleeping Beauty Mine in Arizona- the pair of round cabochons and have a wonderful basket weave carving. Look for these earrings later this year- set in yellow gold and diamonds!
