Turquoise, blue and silver! These are emblematic of the Southwest style. From cowboy boots to tribal Indian jewelry the Southwest is a rich palette of colorful design ideas.
Turquoise is a mineral deposit. Very little is found in Mexico but rather isolated to a small geographical area in the Southwest USA. Since it is relatively expensive, manufacturers have made some good imitations of this beautiful stone. I've used primarily turquoise dyed howlite to make these jewelry pieces at an affordable price.
