It's not often I can say that.
But I feel so lucky that I won this gorgeous necklace
from Michelle over at MiShel Designs.
I love it!
Her work is gorgeous. Please do hop over to
Michelle also has an Etsy shop where she sells
beautiful hand made findings.
You can check it out here.
In addition, we just returned home from being gone for two weeks in
beautiful, cool, Colorado. We managed two days at the
Rock and Mineral show in Creede.
I feel like I won there too. It was so much fun.
Here are a few of the things I'm so excited about.
|Turquoise. It's all about choices, you know. And|
this is some of the turquoise I came home with. :)
|From the top: A geode slice from Ocho, Mexico; 2 Anasazi artifacts; a piece of Mammoth Ivory|
|Turquoise, Cultured Pearls and Lapis|
|Water Buffalo Teeth from India - Really?? Yes!! So Bizarre & yet organic & cool!|
|Magnasite; Turquoise and Quartz|
|Top: Belemnites/American Squid from the Jurassic Age (Delaware)|
and two Crinoid Stems (from OK and Penn)
|Lapis: I love it!|
|Sleeping Beauty Turquoise - Isn't it a gorgeous blue?!|
There you have a sampling of the treasures I brought home.
There are more. :)
And now I have to declare a moratorium on bead/stone buying.
But it's so great to have choices!
Plus, I got to spend at least an hour picking up rusty bits
at the site of an old lumber mill on top of a mountain.
I think I'll save that photo for later. ;)
Have a great weekend!
