Beautiful turquoise from Auntie's Beads

Ok, just because turquoise was "last year's" color doesn't mean that it is passé!  Look at this beautiful turquoise that I received from Auntie's Beads last week.  You can find these pieces and more at their gemstone page.  In the picture above, you'll see from top to bottom:

Small turquoise chips
Medium turquoise nuggets
6mm turquoise rondelles
Squared cross pendant

The rondelles are my favorites, and I immediately had to start putting them to use as cap beads on these brick stitched tube beads:

I've got an idea in mind for how these are going to be used, along with some of the other materials shown above, but it may take a little while for me to get it all together.  I'll be sure to show you the results as soon as the piece is ready.  I'll probably do a giveaway with some of the left over beads too, so stay tuned!

As regards FTC disclosure guidelines: I have received turquoise beads free of charge from Auntie's Beads in order to write a review and/or create a project free of charge for you.  I have not been paid for my endorsement as it pertains to the products received.

I love turquoise. It never goes out of style, as far as I'm concerned.

I have some of those strings of chips in your top photo and I know what I want to do with them. Now I have to find some time.

Cyndi, let's race!
