Terrific Turquoise - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

 

Since I live in the Desert Southwest, turquoise is a definite favorite of people, both the gemstone itself and the color.  Turquoise is a shade of blue that lies on the color scale between blue and green. It has psychological characteristics associated with both of those colors:  the calmness of blue and the growth that is represented in green. Turquoise is said to be a color that balances blue, green and yellow, linking it to emotional balance. It is a color promotes a feeling of serenity and stability.  I don’t know about you, but whenever I work with turquoise, I do feel a great sense of peace and calmness.

 

Terrific Turquoise is the theme of today’s Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade blog.  Each artisan handmade item selected uses the color turquoise (or even the gemstone itself) as a major part of the design or as a beautiful accent.  Most of these beauties are one of a kind designs and all are made from the heart.  I hope you enjoy these handmade creations using the color turquoise.

The energy ot turquoise

Some find turquoise to be serene and restful but I find energy in it. That color! It is the color of possibility, a bright spark in the drabness of the ground, an unexpected treasure! Thanks for sharing this wonderful color and the inspired handmade finds!

I love turquoise too

The gemstone and the color. Thanks for showing my earrings in this terrific turquoise collection. I enjoyed playing with the blue-ness of turquoise in making those earrings, pairing the stone with truer blues and purples. It's so wonderful to design with. Thanks again.
