I went there with ONE specific thing in mind: fancy, sparkly, faceted, briolettes. No pearls. No stones that I had to get just cos they were so pretty. No dollar strands of bling. But then I was lucky enough to win a $20 discount from one of my favorite vendors, just for responding "I'm Attending!" to the Facebook Event. Only 4 people bothered to respond, but still, I got that discount! So that was pretty exciting. And that vendor is my favorite seller of pearls, so.
So here's what I intended to buy: L-R, Labradorite, Moonstone (thinking of you Malin!), Chalcedony, Amethyst, Rose Quartz. All faceted and sparkly and beautiful. Yay!!!
The obligatory, but undeniably awesome pearls. Plus some turquoise from another vendor that snuck into this photo.
Dollar Bling. Sometimes, you just need the dollar bling.
People want their sugar skulls. I depleted my stash last week, so I had to restock. Plus carved jade in red (I have larger green like this), and faceted pearls! I was so excited to find them!
Six feet of copper rolo chain, which will someday meet Liver of Sulfur. Carved butterflies and some lovely rutilated quartz.
There were also a couple of findings & jewelry settings that weren't worth the photos. But overall, I think I scored!
