Recently we took a trip down to Tucson, Arizona to attend the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show. It is an overwhelming experience to view all the incredible stones that this earth can produce – fantastic colors, sizes and pieces from all over the world. Richard picked up some amazing new cabachons that he plans to use in his jewelry. One of our newest additions is an unusual stone casually called “Bumblebee Agate” originating from Indonesia. It has a lovely yellow color with trims of gray and white. Very unique. We also picked up a “flat lap” machine to use in preparing stones for buckles. Lots of fun and interesting new ideas.
