New York, New York

Greetings from the Big Apple!!  We've been having such an amazing time shopping for gemstones and metalsmithing supplies.  Boy, do I have A LOT to show you, lol!  This is actually just from Day1:
We scored these gorgeous strands of rondelles from Dikra.  From left to right, they're Labradorite, Amethyst, Hessonite Garnet, Aquamarine & Peridot.

These briolette strands came from both Dikra and another one of our favorite stores, Suma Beads Gems & Pearls.  They're Iolite, Garnet, Green Onyx & Amethyst (from left to right).  They're even more stunning in person, and I can hardly wait to use them!

We also got some cool new tools at Metalliferous, but they're not quite as exciting to look I'll spare you there, lol.

I heart NYC!!  There's just so much to do and see!  Speaking of which, I better get going.  However, I'll be back soon to share Day 2's many purchases with you!

  2. Thank you!! I will be posting about the rest of the trip and adding pics of our other purchases soon. :)

  4. Thank you! I don't think Suma has a website, but you can visit Dikra online here: :)

  5. I would think so! I think it sounds like a beautiful combo, but I am partial to yellow gold. :)
