Two feathers turquoise necklace

This has to be my favorite piece. I hand carved the feathers and mixed with copper and brass. The turquoise was a gift from a friend and it just fits this piece perfectly! Not sure I can part with it but, I will try. She's available in my Etsy store. She's full of wonder and adventure!

Turquoise >> Stone a Week

zodiac sign: aquarius, capricorn, pisces, sagittarius 
planet: venus, jupiter
birthstone: december
energies: luck, love, protection, healing

turquoise is one of the oldest known stones in man's history. it carries great wisdom and basic truth within it. it comes in either greenish-blue or sky blue.

i used turquoise in my mini majestic thunderbird piece. it's a smaller version of the majestic thunderbird i previously made shown at the bohemian collective here.

the thunderbird is a symbol of power, creation, and transformation.
this mini majestic thunderbird is available in my etsy store here.
