"You're So Vein" is a stunning pendant and earring set of Ribbon Turquoise in brown boulder stone.
Ribbon or Boulder Turquoise comes from mines in the Arizona and Nevada region and is cut in such a manner as to show the vein of turquoise running through the deep chocolate brown of the boulder stone.
Embellished with jade and copper beads the teardrop pendant measures (2 1/2 in by 2 in ) and hangs on a necklace of jade and brown 2 mm round beads and copper colored seed beads (16 in ) long including the copper toggle. This pendant is light in weight, nicely sitting high on the breast bone.
The earring cabochons, hanging on copper shepherd hooks, measure ( 1 3/4 in ) in length by ( 1 in ) at the widest point. All three cabochons are backed by a soft grey suede for comfort.
Whether you step out line dancing, or cowgirl up to a boogie beat, this set with its rich deep brown background setting off the ribbons of turquoise is an eye catching conversation starter that you will enjoy.
I have always been attracted to all things natural and earthy. As a bead artist living here in the southwest desert I am surrounded by wonderful lapidary folks giving me access to unusual cuts of jasper and agates that lend themselves to the unique "one of a kind' beaded jewelry I design. Working with natural stones and seed beads which I embroider onto leather or suede using my own original designs with native stitches and techniques I sew or loom each piece individually.Website: www.gaudybyneola.com
