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!

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!
