What's a Picture Worth?

Answering the title question, you may be thinking a picture is worth "a thousand words". I could spend many words telling you about the beautiful new beads that went into the store this week, but how about a couple of pictures?

These are topaz Swiss blue cabachons and I think the color is outstanding. They make me want to burst into song about blue. Let's see; isn't there one about being blue because somebody left?

Enough of that . . . I guess the next question for today's blog entry should be "what's worth more than a picture?" Think about it . . .

The informative articles we add to the website from time to time are usually predominantly words and provide as many pictures as possible. This week, however, Szarka answered the above question regarding what might be worth even more than a picture by saying "a video!" We hope you enjoy watching and learning how to make your own earwires in the video she made.

Now I'm wondering if we need another question. "What's worth more than a video?" Regrettably, I think the answer to this one would require a personal visit to your home from Magpie Gemstones. Some of you live so far away that a visit would take weeks and then who would fill the orders for our other customers? Alas, we're doing the best we can with words, pictures and the occasional video.

. . . doing all we can for you, we are Magpie Gemstones.
