Anthropology of Turquoise

"I used to wonder why the sea was blue in the distance and green close up and colorless for that matter in your hands. A lot of life is like that. A lot of life is just a matter of learning to like blue." Miriam Pollard The Listening God

It's nice to finally finish a book that's been sitting beside my bed for a few weeks: The Anthropology of Turquoise, by Ellen Meloy, and post some photos inspired by her words. My sister is getting married in a few months, and I am her maid of honor. Here is a preview of her bridesmaid gowns. I think she made a wonderful choice in color, the hues she selected are titled mermaid and oasis. They are different styles and fabrics, but both are long and fall in a silky sweep to the ankle.


The yarn featured beside the gowns is hand spun merino. I call the colorway Amulet
