From the blogger: "This tutorial is a beautiful, rustic tribal-looking gemstone statement necklace. I love the mix of vibrantly colored Imperial Jasper and antique brass. The sparkles of the crystals adds in just enough bling to add some interest to the piece."

I really like turquoise. Not just because it's my birth stone but I love the south western look. I bought some online a while back and never found a pattern for it. This is easy and pretty and won't cost much at all since I have most everything I need to create it.

I love the different textures and styles combined together to create this gemstone necklace. They all work well together. I think most of the materials for this project are or where at the time available at any Michaels store which makes it very convenient since there are Michaels located almost everywhere.
