Gem Faire, I HEART you!

Today was a treat! We were supposed to go to Yellowstone this weekend, but with highs in the 50's and our trailer still in the shop, we decided to stay home. I can't say I was too sad, because I got to go to the Gem Faire!!! I LOVE that place, and found some great deals today. I got to go with my two favorite ladies, my mom, and my daughter. Here are my finds...



The average price per strand was about $3, and the majority of the strands are real stones.




I already made 5 bracelets. I am into monochromatic colors for now. The thing I love about making jewelry, is the same thing I love about flower gardening... if you get sick of the arrangement, you can change it up, and not feel bad.




Look at these darling birdies!!! I paid the most for this strand at $10, but thought I could make some cute earrings or charms out of them.


Love to layer my bracelets! I love all the different shapes and sizes of the beads!


This photo kind of freaks me out, as it is so close up on my finger, but I had to show my new chunky ring. I am crazy about it!!!



Check the website, and see if there is a Gem Faire near you. They come to Utah three times a year. If you sign up on the website, they will e-mail and mail you coupons for free admission. If you love beads, and have never been, it will blow your mind! I have not been to a bead store since my first trip to Gem Faire!

I am linked up!!!

Join  us Saturdays at tatertotsandjello.com for the weekend wrap up  party!



Have a great rest of your weekend!!!
