Beyond the Valley Studio Tour in Dundas-Coming this Saturday!!

October 14, 2008 | Filed under: Uncategorized

The Beyond the Valley Studio Tour is just a few days away.  Tomorrow I will set up my displays.  I need to see as a whole, the pieces that are ready and what more needs to be done.  If you won’t be able to visit my studio on Saturday, Oct. 18th or Sunday, Oct. 19th, please give me a call and we can set up an appointment for the Thursday or Friday prior.  The hours of the tour are 10 a.m to 5 p.m. each day.  And remember that it is free admission. 

 I continued with opening the new supply of gemstones.  Did I not say that it would be like Christmas?  I had forgotten that I purchased wonderful fluorite in shades of green, and mauve.  Also malachite, and an assortment of shapes in cracked quartz -hearts, squares etc.  Quartz is given a cracked look through heat treatment.  Many stones have their colour enhanced this way as well.  Also there is rose quartz from Madagascar and Brazil.  The Brazilian stones are much more intense in colour.  I can’t wait to get started and have a number of ideas percolating already.
