Tucson Gem Show: INCREDIBLE

Incredible is the first word that came to mind.

Dynamic would be a second choice…

The selection is incredible… The Tucson Gem Show has not disappointed! It’s massive. When you think of the manual labor of lugging thousands of pounds of gems, crystals, beads and findings, it is an undertaking if dynamic proportions.

First I’ll give you a quick tour of my friend Patti’s studio. I had the pleasure of sleeping in there the first night, let me tell you the dreams were sweet!

Her studio is so beautiful, as well as her entire home.

It is such a beautiful place for her to work.

Her home was like a French sanctuary, full of tranquility and beauty.

Her family has the most amazing dogs…

My kids would love playing with them and they are so good with her kids.

Here are a few pieces I made since arriving…

I forgot to take photos of my loot, so I’ll have to share them later! I am sorry!

We completed three fun, giggle-filled shopping days at Tucson. I had the most amazing time with Patti, Liz, Linda and Katie! Here is us on our last day relaxing with a beverage and reminiscing. I was sad to leave them but am happily in Lake Havasu City visiting my Mom who I have not seen since Thanksgiving.
