Gem show

WELL! I had a rather amazing weekend. Big family party on Saturday and I got to hang out with all of my fabulous and beautiful cousins. Sunday mom and I went to Long Beach for a gem show. wowowow. It was at the Queen Mary and we only went for an hour because I knew I wasn't prepared to spend a ton of money. Next time, I'll be ready!! ;)

stones and stones and stones and stones....

This is what I came home with:

I made mom a birthday gift with similar pearls but I ran out... I am obsessed with labradorite and this cut caught my eye... I already made some earrings I'm going to put up on my etsy shop in a couple days. And I know exactly what I'm going to do with the turquoise, just gotta go grab some chain this weekend. I am really excited and can't wait to do some more designing! And of course, I'll come back and share with everyone. Have a great week :)
