The Ourika Necklace

It`s still mighty hot here in Marrakech and no sign of it relenting.  Zaki and I are just back from lunch and while home is only a 10 minute walk from the little cafe where we ate, by the time we got back I thought I could see a mirage.

So with it still being too hot to sew and after yesterday`s quilting calamity, I dug out my stones this morning.


Aventurine rondelles, aventurine round beads, rainbow flourite chips and acquamarine chips.

The purples and pale greens remind me of the glacial waters you see up in the Ourika Valley in the foothills of the Atlas mountains...a place to where the Marrakechis escape the summer heat.


These are much more my colours  - I love green and the combination of purple and green is so pretty.


It measures 18 inches (46 cm) or the length of a brachiosaurus` neck...tomorrow I have a giveaway to celebrate my 100th post...do hop over.
