This is a continuing series of pieces I've made for a friend who has a seemingly endless love of turquoise and silver.  See Turquoise Necklace: St Tropez, Turquoise Bracelet: St Tropez Set, Hammered Earrings: St Tropez Set.

While taking my usual train commute into NY City, one of my friends was flipping through a catalogue.  She was eyeing a multi-strand turquoise necklace that she really liked, but could not believe what they were charging for the piece.  I glanced at it and said, yes you're right that is outrageous .... it really shouldn't cost that much.  Her reply "could you make it for me?" I did make the necklace, and had so many turquoise beads left over, that I threw in a bracelet.

This piece is made with multiple turquoise bead sizes and shapes.  Included is hill tribe silver, silver beads in many sizes, shell heshi beads and indian amethyst rounds that I picked up at the Taj Mahal on my last trip there.

Caution ... don't try wearing the whole set together! It could result in a carni-inspired, turquoise studded get up.

Thank you! I made it for a friend who asked for a Southwestern turquoise design with silver accent.  Happily, she was very excited when I showed it to her.  That is always the best part for me is to see someone wearing my designs!
