What can be more beautiful than the combination of copper and turquoise?
I love turquoise whether it’s the real stuff (used in this DIY) or dyed Howlite and Magnesite. Turquoise is a very versatile stone that is complimented by any metal tone. I especially love pairing turquoise with copper. There is just something about the way it looks that is just amazing. And when you mix metals together with turquoise, you get something truly special.

    Press the ends of the wires together using chain nose/flat nose pliers pinch the wires together until they run parallel to each other and sit snugly above the stone. It’s okay if the wires aren’t exactly side by side and cross just a bit. If for some reason your notice wires are not exactly the same length, don’t sweat it. It will work out just fine.
