This was a long road trip and on the way home I stopped in Tucson to visit a friend, and we spent a day at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. We could easily have spent a week looking at all the beads, and minerals and gems, and still not seen it all. What an awesome display of beauty and glitz. Below are a couple of wonderful crystal stones, and two pieces of African handwoven indigo fabric. I brought the fabric home with me, but unfortunately I couldn't bring the crystals. Maybe next year, but I'm thinking that fabric will make a nice Boro type jacket. Will let you know.
