I bought 3 big rectangular Boulder Turquoise Beads when we shopped at Colbaugh Processing back in September. I love the look of them but they were too large for a necklace link in my opinion. To me they looked like they should be a pendant so that's what I tried with them using wire weaving and wrapping.
Of course they needed a necklace so I made up several Triple Loop Links and combined them with 8 mm Boulder Turquoise beads. It's a big bold necklace with that size bead but I like it and I know there are other ladies out there who will too.
I antiqued the copper then polished and shined it & added a protective finish using ProtectaClear to preserve the patina I gave it.
I also made a pair of matching earrings using the 8 mm Boulder Turquoise Beads and the Triple Loop Links I created.
