The Latest At Cactus and Coyote

I've just finished my latest coordinated designs...a Turquoise Magnesite set I call "Ocean Waves".
Magnesite has a creamy-white base color with stunning sandy-brown and earthy rust-toned matrix  ~ some combined with warm hints of pink.  It forms from the carbonation of magnesium-rich rocks.  Beads vary in color and can range from white to yellow to grayish-brown.  When dyed turquoise, it's very hard to tell the real thing from magnesite!

"Ocean Waves" is a set of necklace/bracelet/earrings ~ but, of course, can be purchased separate!
