I was going to name this blog entry something else but I didn't want to mess up my "adult content" rating because of one word. I went to a bead/gem show today and I wasn't expecting much. After going to the Intergem shows not much else can compare to the experience. However this show had quite a few dealers who were really nice and had a gorgeous selection! So I am a lot lighter in the wallet.
I am going to let these gemstones marinate a bit on my mind and then we will see what I come up with. I will be offering one of the popular Cubist Necklaces in the Green Amethyst cubes you see in an unoxidized sterling silver. Gorgeous! The Prehnite chunky briolettes will go towards my Rivendell necklaces. There is one rather large on in the middle of the strand that I don't know what I am going to do with yet.
Here we go!
In this pictures there is some Citrine, Prehnite (soft green) briolettes, some Moss Amethyst Brios peaking through there and some of the Green Amethyst faceted cubes.
Here we have some sizable Whisky Quartz brios on the left and the sparkling Citrine is center. Gorgeous lemon yellow, best I have purchased yet.
Some pink and green Amethyst cubes.
The Whiskey Quartz and some pink Amethyst "dolphin" cut faceted brios and the Prehnite.
I left a few strands out in my haste. Good haul, no?
