Beads, Beads and more Beads

Beads, beads & more beads

I am shopping. Shopping for gems, beads and jewelry at the Gem and Lapidary wholesale show in Orlando, FL. I visited table after table covered with all different shapes, sizes and textures of beads. Everything from A-Z is here. I found some really nice Lapis from Afghanistan, in shapes I hadn’t had before. I came across some citrine ovals. They will be used in an abundance necklace, I have been wanting to create. Because I bought many strands I was able to get them at a good price, which will make the abundance necklace very affordable. That is what makes going to a gem show so much fun, you never know what you will find, and sometimes you find real bargains.
Not only did I find beads, I found some exceptional pendants to create into necklaces. A Wonderful carved Quan Yin made from orange Carnelian and a Buddha carved from Nephrite Jade. From a Tibetan dealer I purchased some beautiful handmade Tibetan beads made with old Tibetan Turquoise.
With February just around the corner, I stocked up on hearts in a variety of gemstones, and bought pounds of rough Rose quartz, the stone of love. I am going to place some around the entrance to my home, creating a vortex of healing love energy.
I am going home with new treasures, I can’t wait to sit down at my work table and begin creating with these new gems. Inspired and ready to begin the new year with new ideas and creativity.
