Well . . . it's ALMOST show time. If you are like me, you want to plan ahead for bead hunting and I thought you might enjoy having a heads up on when Kateri (minus the long hair) from Magpie Gemstones will be taking the beads out for shows.
Mississippi here she comes! Look for her at the Harrison County Gem & Mineral Society Show in Pass Christian, Mississippi August 12-13. Then she's Oklahoma bound September 16-18 for the Enid Gem and Mineral Society Show in Enid, Oklahoma. Also in September, the beads will be ready for your viewing (and purchase) at the Wimberley, Texas Bead retreat September 23-25. We will post more information about the Wimberley event soon. You can also click on the link on the website for more details about these shows. http://www.magpiegemstones.com/shows.html
Did you happen to notice the article just posted on the website regarding how to effectively use Facebook? It's written by our friend Shannon of Vixens Natural Jewelry I think you will find this information very helpful. Thanks Shannon!
I hope you haven't forgotten to place an order (before July 23rd) for your entry in for the necklace giveaway mentioned in last week's blog. You'll remember that you can either make a purchase or send us a postcard that we receive on or before July 23 in order to be in the drawing for this gorgeous necklace and earrings. If you need more information please follow this link http://www.magpiegemstones.com/jewelry_giveaway.html Don't wait too long, the days of July are tick, tick, ticking away.
No blog entry would be complete without beads . . . (you know, we ARE a bead company) Did you see the aventurine that's on sale? These are really yummy colors that work for right now as well as Fall.
As you can see, we've got a pretty good "show" going here at Magpie Gemstones; yet, not show is complete without an audience. We hope you are part of ours!
. . . showing you the best we can offer, we are Magpie Gemstones.
