Birthstone Inspiration for December: Turquoise Tones Mosaic Pendant

DSCN2034 December’s turquoise is one of my favorite gems.  When I was little, I would visit my grandparents in El Paso, TX and we’d drive to New Mexico(the state I was born), to the little town of Mesilla, for Mexican food at La Posta Restaurant.  I loved the gift shop with the silver and turquoise jewelry.  The pure intensity of the blue caught my eye.  I have a necklace that I remember always having, a cross made of small dots of turquoise set into silver.

I read that the Navajo believe turquoise is a piece of sky fallen to earth.  I like that image of something beautiful as blue sky coming to where we are on the earth.
