I just received these earrings in the mail. They are described as from the 70's, vermeil gold wash over silver (I don't know about that) and the round donut is carnelian with dangling turquoise. The filigree is just the same on the front as it is on the back. Looks like a butterfly to me or dragonfly and I think it goes pretty darn good with those beaded necklaces that I never identified. Those beads could very well be African seeds, but the color sure works with the earrings. I love the side of these earrings too. I'm thinking of having some made from sterling by a silversmith I know. What do you think?
The third photo is a turquoise pendant made by my friend that is just gorgeous. At first I wasnot sure about it being on the leather, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
She also made the turquoise ring in the 4th photo. That turquoise is from a Nevada mine that has been depleted years ago, mine #8. I will later post a photo of the ring on. Just wait till you see it! The turquoise in the ring is a little darker and the matrix is coppery brown. Here is some info I got off the net about that mine and some photos to show the color better!
I wish I could stick around right now but it's driving Ms Daisy time...in fact I'm about 3 hours late in doing so! Yikes. Ms Daisy is not too happy right now...oops!!!
xoxo to all!!
