Indigo Blue

The new EST challenge hosted by Iragrant has the theme: your favorite color!
I combined one of my fav's: turquoise, with the beautiful color indigo blue.
I let me inspire by the beautiful vibrant blue of the Tuaregs .
The Tuareg are sometimes called the "Blue People" because the indigo pigment in the cloth of their traditional jallaba and turbans stained the wearer's skin dark blue.
The indigo blue-colored veil that Tuareg men wear is called Alasho. Taking on this veil is associated with the rite of passage to manhood; men begin wearing a veil when they reach maturity. The veil usually conceals their face, excluding their eyes and the top of the nose.


YAY!!! My blue rose ring has been featured on Etsyitemoftheday!
After hearing about Etsy from a friend, Jackie has moved from an interest in Etsy to a passion for the site. Each day, Jackie looks for her next favorite Etsy item and posts it on Etsy Item of the Day!
