Alrighty then... let's continue on through Tuscon.
I absolutely LOVE the cool Tibetan stuff that I found in Tuscon. I bought the ones above for some super cool long necklaces that I will be making for Herringstone's. I bought a few in white too, and I think all these will look cool with all the bright colors coming in the spring. If you are a local yocal, you can go there to check them out soon.
I mean, look how PRETTY they are up close. I cannot stand it!
Funny that I truly think I know Tucson better than I know Baton Rouge, where I went to college for 2 years. It's because, I suppose, I have to keep my mind very focused when I am in Arizona to keep up with where I am and where I am going. And because I go there just about every year.
This was my fortune. I liked it.
And it is considerably different to be surrounded by mountains vs the low level we are at in Louisiana. However, I wouldn't give up the green of our yards for the dirt in theirs for anything!!
CHECK out this amethyst geode. I really don't know my mineral terminology, but basically, this was FULL of little amethyst crystals. No tellin what this thing is actually worth. I think they were asking $40,000 for this one.
Jessi... hands on the wheel! You're gonna get us kilt!
Jessi and I found the funnest booth. I am going to come home and learn to use clay and crystals, which I've never done before.
They take blank bezels and fill them with clay, then use little crystals to fill the background. I so loved this look!
This is the bezel that I bought for all my beach retreaters. I think we can make something very similar.
I also bought lots of these super awesome beads to use in earrings for spring and hopefully, my favorite little local boutique will want to stock these as well. If they don't, I'll have a whole, whole bunch of bright earrings ready for sale on my blog!!
Couldn't you just LICK all these colors?! So yummy!
Oh, and I bought a pretty good stock of these handmade beads as well. They are ceramic.
These are the jeans that I MUST recreate with the great textile ribbon I bought from India.
yep. I am gonna have these cool cuffs around my ankles! Get ready!
It was tough to deide. And then, Jessi and I both struggled to figure out which ribbon we thought would make the coolest camera strap!
This is the booth with all the cool Indian goodies.
It had good energy! And was just so fun to shop in.
Don't all pictures look better with Instagram filters?!
I'm not even a big wine drinker and I was all for a big ol glass of Riesling after hours upon hours of digging and scouring for hours in tiny bins and standing for ohhh... like, 8 hours straight.... for 4 straight days.
And now it's Jessi's turn to take a photo with our bigass appetizer!
More to follow. And thanks to all of you for commenting after my rant on my love language on Sunday! I appreciate it.
