I've noticed that many people like turquoise coloured clothes but fewer of them go for the actual gemstone in jewelry. Perhaps Susan's design here will persuade them otherwise for turquoise is a bright and happy colour.

Beaders may be hesitant because they aren't sure of what contrast colours to use. Susan has chosen to offset the bright blue with black seed beads. The metal elements also tone down the bright colour - notice the alternating and repeating pattern of solitary metal bead with those flanked by the seed beads. All in all it's perfect for summery outfits!
