Turquoise and Tan: Summer Jewelry Set

I can always tell that summer has hit for me personally when I start wearing a lot of turquoise.  I love the bright blue with brown mottled into it and the less-popular "yellow" turquoise (which is really more of a chartreuse).  These stones are just...classic. 

And so, I am also pulled towards beads in these colors.  In my constant effort to keep my jewelry stock up, but with different colors so that there is something for everyone, I did a set in teal/blues, tans/browns with a splash of green. 

I made a full set: a lariat necklace, leaf bracelet, cluster earrings and a pendant or two.  One of the pendants has sold and the cluster earrings before I could catch a decent photo!  Ah well, that's a good problem to have, I hope they're enjoying their new homes while I wear the remaining pieces (and show some over at Grove Gallery).

(Sorry, this one is a little blurry)

Pendant (Reversible)

Putting this post together, I'm really missing the earrings already.  Maybe I'll get a pair done in between working on my larger project this weekend...
