Every few months I get to do one of my favorite things about this job and that is visit my local gem fair! It is the place I gain inspirations, learn about new products, and get my supplies. I use this opportunity to replenish my stash with amazing and quality semi-precious stones.
This week I found my favorite new item called Spiny Oyster, its the white and wine colored round beads in the image above. I spent more on this than I usually do, but I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait to get started working with it!
My other favorite items from the top down are:
*Tundra Sapphire: a dainty faceted stone will make a lovely delicate fall necklace.
*Lapis: One of the best blue stones around. I have pairs of earrings planned for these beads.
*Green Opal: I have to say this was another new one to me. I just loved the greens and the natural rough look to this stone. I will probably use these small beads as another element in a necklace or bracelet.
Check back next week to see what I have created with these elements.
Which one is your favorite? What would you like to see me make? Let me know in the comments below.
Thanks for visiting!
