Turquoise Necklace

This big, beautiful turquoise pendant had caught my eyes and I just got to have it and make something special with it. I made this for my favorite customer who had been regular at my booth for years. I hope she came by next Saturday.

I used the Fimo Peppermint and a bit of gold to make those beads. Twisted and turn, cut into pieces and put them back together to mimic the pattern on the pendant. They turned out darker after baking. Not bad, but next time I will add a bit of white into the clay, I think. Real Turquiose piece with Pepermint color clay beads, Red Coral, small (real) turquoise, and small beads made with Indian Red clay, small golden beads, I am pretty happy with the outcome.

Hi Ponsawan......happy late Mother's day and congratulations on teaching your new "addicts" ha ha.....can you tell me what kind of cord you use for this type of necklace...I am looking for a necklace w/several strands...the leather I have is too big to fit the small beads...thank you for your help...Cher


Cher,I got this waxed cord when I went home. Sorry. First I thought it was waxed linen, but it might be polyester. Anyway, it is waxed, strong, samll and go through medium size hole. I don't see it here though. Waxed linen will work too, but my cord will get softer. I might have to import them since many people had asked for it. Thanks for asking.
