Gem Show


I belong to the Brukner Gem & Mineral club. Every year we put on a fabulous show in April. We have displays, demonstrations, a silent auction, kids activities and lots of great vendors with rocks, cabochons and beads. I look forward to this every year and save my tips so I have plenty of money for components for future projects.   The choices are so many and varied.  Beautiful rocks gorgeous beads.   I found some Spring Creek jasper cabochones that I fell in love with, some creamy agates with mauve and teal tones and stick pearls that echoed the colors of the beads.   I bought some odds and ends of beads (love the charoite beads in my goodie pile)   I don’t know what I’m going to do with all of them just yet.   Don’t know which to work on first.   I did make one necklace of copper and turquoise howlite.  


hundreds of beautiful rocks
