Its been almost 6 months since the last time I could go to the gem show.... needless to day I was getting down to the bottom of my stones! Its a good and a bad thing to be so low on supplies, good because it makes you very creative and two, it feels good to use up something you have had forever!
Its bad because, I have grown so much in 6 months with my metal work. I needed higher quality and stones I could set. But not having allowed me to practice setting stones with what I already had and gain the confidence to try out my skills on all these new stones!!
I can't wait to get going on these, stay tuned!
