Nice save! The shape and turquoise give it a Southwestern appeal.

Hey Magnum, I really like the way this turned out. I like the way your inlay turned out and was wondering if you would be so kind as to explain the process you use? It looks like you used Kingston or Sleeping Beauty turquoise. I have tried my hand at turquoise inlay here is the link to my latest and only posted project here on lj Im sure you have an outlet for your turquoise but I can give you a killer resource that is CHEAP for the good/high quality stuff. Thanks for posting!!!

@ Wade; the Turquoise is a base of inlace from Craft Supply. then I had a bag of turquoise stone and I crushed a few pieces with a hammer and sprinkled that in the larger holes and along the top of the inlace.
Yes, I would like the source of turquoise you mentioned.

Thanks for everyone’s comments.
