Recently we went on vacation in Tuscon and had an opportunity to experience the madness of the Tuscon Gem and Mineralogical Show. We have never seen anything like it before - and likely will never see anything quite like it again. I have never seen so many different vendors, shops merchants and traders with as many different types of gems, minerals, fossils and jewels. It was absolutely amazing and i would highly reccomend it for anyone to do at least once.
By now you are probably wondering, "what does all of this have to do with Glass?" Well, I am getting to that - be patient. Like I said, there were hundreds, if not thousands of different stores or merchants selling gems and minerals and fossils out of hotel rooms all over Tuscon, and while we were exploring and buying a bunch of very cool gemstones and semi-precious stones, we started thinking that maybe it would be cool if we used some of these beautiful stones and gemstone beads with our fused glass jewelry, an idea that has now become a reality. I would like to introduce you to Shimmering Glass's Fused Glass Gemstone Jewelry
We have started this new collection of fused glass jewelry with gemstones by creating several beautiful fused glass pendants that features lovely necklaces of gemstone beads, Amethyst, Blue and Green Aventurine, Rose Quartz, Turquoise, Garnets and Pearls. Dichroic glasss pendants with shimmering colors and abstract designs and patterns with beautiful necklaces of semi-precious stone beads. And this is just the beginning. We will be adding more necklaces with Gemstone beads in the future and will be adding additional types of gemstones as well, Peridot, Citrine, Tourmaline and more.
I would love to add some photos to this blog to show you what they look like, unfortunately the photo upload application on the blog admin is not working right now - technology, you got to love it. You can't live without it and you can't shoot it. Though, sometimes you might like to.....
I digress, please do yourself a favor and check out our gemstone jewelry inside the Shimmering Glass Shop. Go to the Fused Glass Jewelry and look for the fused glass jewelry with gemstones, you will be gladd you did. Keep coming back! We will be adding more in the near future!
