Nevada Boulder Turquoise!

I buy this lovely material from my favorite stone dealer whenever she gets a batch in. I'm crazy about it! It's turquoise from Nevada, dug and cut by one particular guy and this pair is mostly matrix with a horizontal  vein of turquoise running through it. I've built sterling bezels and added 14kt gold elements such as the gold balls placed at the edge of the turquoise vein on either side and the connection at the bottom and the bale of each pearl. The posts are also 14kt gold for added strength. The silver has been textured and oxidized and all the metal lightly sanded for a nice matte finish which contrasts nicely with the light polish on the tops of the stones.

Colorful Sterling and Glass Bracelet

Flattened glass cabochons snug in sterling bezels. This bracelet measures 8 1/4" long and has been textured and oxidized creating a lovely matte finish setting the glass off nicely.
