Tantalizing Turquoise Blue - Artisan Handmade Creations


Turquoise is a color, in all its glorious shades from light to dark, that is greatly beloved by most people.  It is a combination of blue with a small amount of yellow, fitting in the color scale between blue and green.   In color psychology, turquoise is used to heal the emotions, creating emotional balance and stability.  It seems to radiate peace, calm and tranquility coupled with an uplifting quality.  Metaphysically, if it is a favorite color, you are said to be seeking spiritual fulfillment and are often seen as evolved or an “old” soul.

All that being said, turquoise is my second favorite color, running very close to my favorite, red.  Turquoises (and reds) dominate my clothing and jewelry.  Am I “evolved?”  Probably not but I have been told I have an “old soul” on several different occasions.  I always take that as a compliment, believe me!


Since turquoise is a much loved color the world over, I decided to browse through the shops of very talented artist friends and share a wide range of handmade creations that use the color turquoise in the design.  Many shades of turquoise are shown here, some that are mostly turquoise in color; some with turquoise as accents.  If something catches your eye, please click on the live link below the photograph for more information.  I hope you enjoy.
