Adventures at the Bead Show

Turquoise colored rough stones

Every year I attend a bead show to acquire new stones, gems and other materials for my custom creations. I want to share some behind the scenes photos, so check back often or subscribe to the mailing list to see more!

What are these? Beautiful turquoise colored rough stones waiting to be cut, polished and set.  Love the color! Many American turquoise mines have closed in the past few years, making some of the best prized turquoise such as Sleeping Beauty and Kingman Mine, harder to find and, of course, pricier. But I love it, I hunt for it and I use it in my jewelry! This turquoise has a true intrinsic value, it can only become more rare in the future. Enjoy!
