Day 41: Carico Lake Turquoise Bracelet

Carico Lake Nevada a pretty natural spring green turquoise.  It is this color because of zinc in the stone.  It is not dyed and is beautiful.  I bought one strand this year from the Nevada Turquoise Company at the Bead Faire.
I wanted something special so I made a three strand bracelet with gold-filled beads and a special clasp that I bought at the Bead Faire with 14K gold plated sterling silver.  The three to one connector and the three holed dividing links are gold plated.  That's all I had and I couldn't wait to order gold-filled and probably couldn't afford it anyway.  One day I will replace them.

I am very pleased with the way it turned out  and love the way it flatters my wrist.
