Turkish Style is one of the books I can spend hours with. The pictures are beautiful and show old Turkish houses, that have special wooden ornaments for example in their walls or even in the ceiling. Mostly the shown houses are decorated in the Ottoman style, but some of them are more rustic than elegant. There is a nice synthesis of both to see on many, many pages. I know that this book has a new cover with a different picture, but I have to say, that I prefer this one.
This bracelet definitely belongs to my Mediterranean series, the Czech beads remind me of the tender turquoise shades of a lagoon. The wire I used for this bracelet is colored in a darker copper and is important to bring out the turquoise beads. Woulnd´t this be a perfect accessory for the summer ?
