Southwestern Desert Paintbox


All the colors of the traditional American Southwest desert palette - the only thing missing is a cactus! The turquoise focal stone is solid and heavy, about an inch in diameter and length, with copper coils and hand-twisted eye-pin connecting it to a length of bright copper chain. It really jumps out and strikes you with its gorgeous organic look and feel. Shades of tan from the fossil coral, and terra-cotta, sand, and muted desert rose of the jasper roundels set off the blue of the focal and turquoise nuggets in the body of the necklace. The copper chain shines, and the spacer beads are oxidized, blending in with the muted palette and giving the necklace a vintage feel. A nice, casual look that will go equally well at work or on a day at the beach.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I really wanted the turquoise focal to stand out, so I set it apart from the rest of the beaded portion of the necklace by hanging it from a length of polished copper chain. The other beads were chosen to complement and set off the beautiful blue tones of the turquoise. It all started with putting the focal on a copper wire loop and twisting the bottom coils. The rest of the necklace seemed to fall into place effortlessly once I got that start, as if the "look" I was going for already existed as a template and just had to be assembled.
