Sorry for not blogging yesterday, but we made a little road trip to the NS Gem and Mineral Show at Parrsboro on the Bay of Fundy. It was a gorgeous day for a drive and the perfect location for the show and sale.
It was the first time we had visited and we were so impressed with the enthusiasm most of the exhibitors displayed and the community spirit with which the whole event was organized. Unfortunately, with our two small children in tow, we couldn’t take advantage of all the event had to offer-guided walks, workshops, demonstration and and even ‘The Gemcutters’ Ball’ held on Saturday evening with a live band.
We will probably take a booth at the event next year and take our tools, accessories, findings and books with us.
We may look to stock more semi-precious beads in the future, but for now we will probably stick to expanding our glass range. There are so many beautiful stones and cuts that when we decide to stock them we want to do them the justice they deserve and carry a wide range. You can find some pretty and unusual focal semi-precious stones in ‘The Bead Boutique’ section of the store in the meantime, like these Black Matrix Carnelian Twist Ovals. Just click on the photo to pick yourself up some of these beautiful beads!
