LOL! I can't tell you how many programs I've thought out and designed in my head and on paper and then, satisfied, dropped.

I was just staring at the bracelet and I realized why I'm so drawn to the color. The shade of turquoise color is amazing. And then placing it between red jasper, instead of red coral, makes it stand out more.

Now you got me hooked. I had to go out and research this. But I limited myself to one article.

edit: okay, maybe one more. Examples of color dyes.

That first article on turquoise you linked to was interesting, particularly the shot of the different types of American turquoise. I had no idea American turquoise was so varied and beautiful--I think because Tibetan turquoise is the only stuff I've seen with some variation.

These are not candidates, but they did catch my attention

Simple design
Surf's up
$150
I wonder what those orange beads are made of

I don't care for the 1st one ("simple design"). I very much like the 2nd ("surf's up") and the last one--I'm pretty sure the orange is coral. The $150 one is ok but I think it may be priced too high for the extremely simple (boring) design.


If you want to drive yourself to distraction while drooling over cool stuff, see if you can find if any of your local PBS stations carry "Beads, Baubles and Jewels" or if you can watch episodes online. The stuff they show is lovely and I'm thinking you could get the name of the makers they showcase because my guess is that most, if not all, have their own webpages.

Well...duh!!! It has it's own website and it might be worth browsing around...



My car passed VA state inspection!!! YAY!!! I only needed new windshield wipers and I had the shop do an oil change and the total was under $100--last year was pricey at near $1000...

I've looked more closely at her site and she has some very nice necklaces for men. And then I followed links to similar stuff and other shops, and found more necklaces I liked. All made with coconut beads. I would have worn this look when I was younger.

Thanks. I followed your link. Looks interesting.

BTW, you might be interested to take a look at this Dolph Lundgren bracelet. I don't have words to describe it.

Yeah...I was pleased. It's so nice to have a good mechanic shop!

I didn't notice that. And it's interesting because Cubic Zirconium does not even qualify as a man-made diamond. A man-made diamond is a real diamond, even though some people think this is cheating. A Cubic Zirconium is a different substance.
