Here’s a clock I have been working on for the last month. I got the turquoise on ebay in the form of 18” necklaces for a couple of bucks each. After pounding the turquoise into various consistencies from pebbles to powder I super glued it into imperfections in the white oak. I also took dental picks and cleaned out the grain in the knots for a more detailed look. I also used walnut details on the front.

I really like the look of Turquoise inlays like yours. Now that you explained how you did it I might try it. Your clock is a definite winner.
