On our constant quest for jewellery making inspiration, we couldn't help but notice the current popularity of gorgeous, big and chunky Turquoise pieces. 

Celebrity Spots

In the recent 2015 Oscars the popular Australian actress, Cate Blanchett, wore a stunning Tiffany and Co Turquoise statement necklace. 

The necklace attracted a lot of attention in the fashion headlines and we think it is the perfect pop of colour with her sophisticated black dress. 

Megan Fox went for the same style at a Film Premier a few years ago - A simple black dress with a stunning chunky Turquoise bead necklace.

Again, the outfit attracted a lot of attention due to the charm of the chunky Turquoise beads.  

We also spotted TV show - Vampire Diaries Star, Claire Holt, wearing a chunky Turquoise necklace at a BAFTA's ceremony and think the layers of turquoise beads sit perfectly with her V cut dress neckline.

Turquoise is a popular summer gemstone, its wonderful vibrant colour is often seen set with silver to compliment its cool coloured tones. Stunning dangling earrings, large, pendant rings, and statement, eye-catching necklaces are all the rage right now and we are loving it! 

MAKE THE LOOK - Chunky Turquoise Twist Necklace

The great thing about Turquoise is that it does all the work with little effort. It's eye-catching patterns and rock like texture mean metal work or stone setting techniques are not always needed to create something spectacular.

In our latest Make The Look we create a beautiful Chunky Turquoise Twist Necklace that re-creates the statement and 'wow' that the spotted celebrities made with their Turquoise pieces.

Plus, it's easy to make - trusty beads, string and a crimp and hook are all you need!

Turquoise is one of the first gemstones to be mined and has long been prized for its intense colour. 

The gemstone has been thought to warn the wearer of danger and illness. It also helps to recognise causes of happiness and unhappiness and master them.

Turquoise was sacred among the Ancient Egyptians, Persians and Chinese, Aztecs and Incas of South America, and Native North Americans for power, luck, and protection.

In terms of healing properties, Turquoise is said to help with exhaustion, hyperacidity, stomach pains and cramps.

Turquoise varies in colour from sky-blue to green and comes in a number of forms... Chinese Turquoise, Turquoise Matrix and Tibetan Spiderweb.
