A two day showcase of my jewelry and Pandanimal lampwork and jewelry starts this afternoon.  Our theme this month is "The World of Narnia".  We both read these books as kids (and we've both been refreshing our memory about them) and made our designs with Narnia in mind.  Here are just a few of the designs that will be available from me.

Tucson Day 6

Good morning!  I've had my coffee and breakfast, checked emails and we're about to start our day of gem hunting.  Have you ever wondered how anyone stays organized going to so many shows over a span of a week?  Well here is my method.  Before I go to the shows I make a list of all the vendors I want to see, figure out what shows they are in and then organize my days by going to venues that are close to one another on the same days.  Here is my schedule for this years Tucson shows.

We arrived in Tucson this afternoon.  Fortunately my mom is still doing well enough (she's in her 80's) to go with me and help me shop for beautiful gems!  We got out luggage and rental car and headed to the JGM Show.  It actually starts tomorrow but Toyo (Feng's Trading) lets me do some shopping while he's setting things up.  Of course he's continually tempting me with beauties that he's pulling out of boxes!  Here are some beautiful, double drilled pearls he has (and a peak at those maroon granulated pearls I'm getting).
