Day 22: A Study In Turquoise and Gold

Turquoise with gold is not the normal combination.  It is seen in expensive jewelry that use karat gold findings and beads.  It is a symbol of greater wealth than the more common combination of turquoise and silver. (Not that they don't look expensive or are costly--we know they are.) Turquoise and silver is the Southwestern style.  Gold is the Uptown style. 

This necklace is an experiment in turquoise and gold.  The larger oval stones are magnesite dyed turquoise.  The gold is freeform shapes of gold finished glass.  The two together compliment one another.   An antiqued gold hook totally adds to the look.  The necklace looks stunning with dark chocolate brown over turquoise.  The piece dresses up the outfit.  Sounds like a fashion show, doesn't it?

This necklace compliments the Type 1 dresser.
