Shopping for gems

Jan and I leave this afternoon to Intergem in Idar Oberstein, Germany. We go shopping for gems and beads.

Throughout the year we keep a (wish) list for the stones and beads that we need or for those we just like to have. Precious gemstone traders and cutters from around the world offer their wares at this fair. Often we find gems and beads that nowhere else are for sale. Although it is a long journey I look forward to it!

Because of this  our atelier will be closed at 15:00 this afternoon. There is a house and dog sitter present and if you have a message, please leave it at the answering machine.
