Faux turquoise

Post by gingerjo on Thu 19 Feb 2009 - 21:56

I made this bead a while ago at a class I went to. Made with Sculpey and I love it. I have some other turquoise ones too to make up. Anyway I couldn't think what to do with it, but thought this suited it perfectly. I wish it was sterling silver wire, but alas I cannot afford that! THe bead itself is almost 2 inches long.

What a lovely blue. It would go perfectly with the card that
Karelyn made for me. LOL

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date Laughing

That's a fabulous stone, Jo - Billie's right, it does look real!

It looks even more real IRL. I have some more to make up, but not sure what to do with them yet. A few hours work in that bead alone! I was asked several times the other day about where I had got it from. Then one said its not from England is it, lol. Faces were a picture when I said I had made it.

Beautiful, I remember getting similar jewellery from an Indian shop somewhere near the Grand Canyon

This is a thread that I spotted quickly when I clicked 'posts since last visit' but I had to wait or I would loose track of what I'd looked at, ooh I was right, it is exciting. How lovely is that! YUM, you are sooo clever.
