Enchanting Turquoise

Last week, I tempted you with beautiful Persian turquoise that wasn't yet made into jewelry. This week I redeem myself and offer you these very, very special pieces, made from the rare and treasured Sleeping Beauty Turquoise from a mine in Arizona. The turquoise got its enchanting name from the shape of the mountain that holds it: it appears as a woman in repose, lying on her back with her arms crossed.

Just the position for these lazy days of summer, don't you think? 

Here, three spectacular pieces from my workshop.
