Sleeping Beauty Awakens

Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is my favorite; the luster reminds me of pearls and the color is just incredible. I've had a small stash of cabs sitting here, tempting me, and when I decided to celebrate finishing my needlework with an afternoon at my torch, I reached for them immediately. I wanted to make something elegant, yet simple; something rich without being opulent. I think the beautiful turquoise, combined with gold accents and a simple silver and gold chain, make this bracelet very special. The toggle is handmade by me, with a very tiny Sleeping Beauty turquoise set on each end. The ring has a large ball of gold which provides just enough weight to keep the clasp on the underside of the wrist.
