Today I had the rare privilege to not only go bead shopping, but to also spend some time with my sister-in-law by ourselves. She received an invitation in the mail for a wholesalers only bead show and invited me to join her. The show was mainly gemstones with some findings, chain and tools. We decided to split a couple strands of dyed rainbow jade and aquamarine along with a roll of chain.
This picture isn't the best, but is was the sterling silver table where I could have very easily spent way too much money, but amazingly we walked away from the table deciding we didn't need any silver at this time.
