The birthstone of December, turquoise has also been known for its protective qualities. I imagine that it’s the perfect gem to create an amulet for those you love, so today’s sketch is of a child wearing a turquoise amulet and bracelet. They were given to her by her parents and grandparents to protect her when they could not.
Unfortunately, my hand became a little cramped today, so we’re back to posting the pencil sketches. I’m still planning to complete the Gemstone Streak Challenge, but I’ll probably stop at the pencil sketches for the last two themes as well. After my hand’s had the chance to rest up, I’ll go back and ink and color them. It should keep me busy for a little while. ^u^
Today marks the end of the monthly birthstones! Tomorrow’s theme is Tiger Eye. I’m looking forward to it!
