Nepalese and Tibetan Lapis, Coral, Resin, Copper and Silver beads.

Natural Sapphire and London Blue Topaz

London Blue Topaz.

Jade, Lapis Lazuli, Kambaba Jasper, and Turquoise.

I took pictures today of all my gem show loot.  I wish It was easier to take good photos of gemstones.  They look pretty here, but so much nicer in person.   My favorites are the sapphires, the topaz, the lapis and the tsavorite.  Of course, my favorites will probably be different tomorrow.  I wish I could keep it all for myself.  I've been thinking about the things I'm going to put together with them for my upcoming shows.  My head is spinning a little with ideas, now I just have to get to work.
