(TRIN-KET: noun - a small ornament, piece of jewelry, etc., usually of little value.)
Inspired by the "365: Make Something Every Day" Creativity Challenge, I will make and post a trinket every day for one year beginning January 1, 2011.

Trinket #67 - Red Turquoise?!
Yep, Red Turquoise. They look remarkably like a dark coral of some kind, but if you look closely, you can see the dark striations of hematite throughout. Something about these beads made me think "tropical", so I paired them up with a small, simple wooden bead. Quick and simple.
I've been wearing my Peridot Jasper earrings the past couple of days and have gotten tons of compliments on them, so I decided to replicate the design here in different colors and shapes!
