Almost a month ago Adam and I flew down to Tucson for our first trip to the Gem Show. It was an overwhelming experience mixed with fun. At this moment there is about two feet of snow on the ground and I’m stuck at home watching it out my window. So I figure this is a great moment to tell you about it.
Adam and I are your typical introverts. We knew going into this experience, we would need to have plenty of down time mixed in. Luckily we gave ourselves a week to get it done, which for the first time at the Gem Show felt perfect.
Once we were there it was a crazy blizzard of buyers and gems. We rushed through quickly because most of the items we saw were beads. Every table was covered with beads of all sizes and colors. Rubies, sapphires, pearls, aquamarines, amethysts, and on and on.
