Who doesn't LOVE TURQUOISE!?!?!

Turquoise has always been able to pull me in, from across a store room floor.  I love the versatility of wearing it with a dress outfit, but my favorite is to wear with jeans and kick it up a notch.  Some while ago I was on the hunt and hit the greatest little bead store in Santa Monica, CA. called Ritual Adornments.  Here's the link for the store.

And what a nice surprise!  There you will find many unique beads for that special something.  They've got gemstones and findings galore.  The service was great. I was pulled to this focal piece of Turquoise.  And now I'm happy to have finished the Cuff Bracelet featured to the right.  I just love the mixture of browns with turquoise. I left that shop so inspired which is a "must have" if I'm going to consider a shop one of my favorites.  I couldn't wait to get home and start beading.  A lot of times a "special bead find" will end up mixed in with my stash until the right design hits me, as did this turquoise piece.  But I knew it was worthy of waiting for something special.  Hope you like it and click to follow to my Etsy shop.
