A Tribute to the Southwest
Well, I haven't begun to work in Turquoise as much as I had planned, mainly because it's hard to find really gorgeous pieces on the internet. I had what I thought was a good supplier but twice now have been disappointed in what I've received. I need to hold the stone and feel it in my hand to really choose it. I may have to plan a trip to visit my sister soon.
In the mean time I had this piece of gorgeous jasper I decided to use. This was a piece that when I started I didn't know what it would end up as, but as it progressed all the pieces seemed to come together. I even surprised myself at how much I liked the end result.
I'm hoping soon to get my mits on some great turquoise, but while I wait for a trip to Arizona I'm pretty happy with what I'm working with.
