Fall Back into Crafting
Fall is nearly here, but before we get there, let's talk about crafts and, of course, stones. Kevin has been busy at the rock saw slicing up some agate. We also got a lot of exciting stock in the store including new pewter charms, onyx bowls and a few customer favorites like large rose quartz chunks. Learn more about a few of those items below. Don't forget to check out the class schedule too! Jennifer's teaching a new class you don't want to miss. 
As always, we hope to see you in-store this month, but if you can't make it, be sure to visit us online on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and our website

Secret Revealed: this closeup featured on our social media is none other than one of our onyx bowls!  
We have recently added these gorgeous onyx vessels to our showroom. We have three of these magnificent bowls in stock. Each one has a unique look and feel. All are large but vary in shape, size, and price. To see them all follow us on social media or check them out in our showroom. 
We have paired these bowls with the onyx plates we got on our last buying trip in Tucson. These fantastic onyx plates are small and perfect for your beads, jewelry, stones or other odds and ends. They come in various shapes, sizes and depths and they’re all available for just $12!
