One of my favorite things about the Tucson gem show is the amazing crystals! It’s almost like being in a museum with no glass between you and the exhibits. When else do you get a chance to stand next to a geode that’s taller than you are?
We’ve spent a lot of time shopping, of course, and found lots of exotic and unusual beads:
…and we’ve also spent a lot of time admiring the unbelievable crystal artwork:
…but, as always, Mother Nature is the ultimate artist:
But really, the best part of the show is seeing old friends, and making new friends along the way. Getting to reconnect and make new connections is really what it’s all about- we are all beads on the same string, after all! So as we get ready to head home with our treasures, I have to take a moment to show gratitude: for friends, family, earth’s treasures, and especially all of YOU guys out there. Thank you for letting us be who we are, and thank you for helping us do what we do best- bringing home the love and good energy from the Sonoran Desert
