Turquoise is December birthstone

Turquoise is the modern December birthstone and the accepted gem for the fifth and eleventh wedding anniversaries.
For centuries, turquoise was thought to protect riders and horses from falls. Today the beautiful stone is considered a good luck "charm" for aviators, flight staff and other professionals who need to ward
off accidents.
Turquoise's bright and happy color is supposed to lend self-confidence to subdued personalities, and it is also very popular as a token of friendship, since Turquoise is reputed to be responsible for faithfulness and reliable relationships.

It makes me happy!!!

Two weeks ago, I sold one of my necklace


When I sell my jewelry and send them to my customers, I always worry,
Not because my jewelry is bad quality (do not get me wrong):-))))but because
what if they do not like the color (because all monitors are different),
or they need a different length, or something else.
And a few days ago, I received feedback:
"This necklace is more beautiful in person than I expected.
I wore it to work immediately and received tons of compliments. Thank you!"

And when I read it, it makes me happy!!!

1). Make a chain 3-3-3-3-3. This means that 3 rings are connected to three more, and three more, and so on. You have to make sure that there is one large twisted ring in the middle of every 3 rings. (Photo1)
2). The picture is how your 3-3-3-3-3 chain should look like. You need to make four more of these 3-3-3-3-3 chains.  (Photo2)
3). Take one eyepin and put only ONE side of the shell bead on. Then, put one small Swarovski crystal on, followed by 2 small twisted rings, and another Swarovski crystal. Finally, put on the other side of the shell bead on and make a simple loop.  You have to make 2 more of these connectors. (Photo3)
4). Take one small twisted open ring. Put one side the chain on it. On the other side of the twisted ring, connect it to one of the connectors. Repeat this step until your bracelet looks like the picture below. (Photo4)
5). Add a lobster claw clasp with a headpin dangle and jump ring closure or a toggle – it’s
 your choice. (Photo5) 
6). For the earrings, make two chains 3-3-3. Instead of using an eyepin for the connector, use a headpin. Connect the earring together using one small twisted ring. Make the other earring. It should look like the picture. (Photo6) 

I hope you enjoyed it!
