December 29, 2011


Wow, it's hard to believe that 2011 is running away while 2012 helps push it on out. This is the time when so many people make resolutions for the new year; how about you? I seem to make similar resolutions year after year and these are seldom resolved!

If you were a gemstone company like Magpie Gemstones, what should be your resolution? . . . As I write this for Magpie, I realize that the word for the company is really RESOLVE and the questions is "what does Magpie Gemstones resolve to do for customers?"

One thing the company resolves is for continue providing gorgeous gemstones for customers. Take a peek at what just went into the online store. I picked up a couple of these Boulder Opals the last time they were available and wrapped them with sterling silver wire. I'm anxious to get some of these new ones.

If you need some ideas for wrapping these opals, you might take a peek at the stones Szarka has wrapped at I often pick up ideas there.

Magpie's resolve to bring us beautiful things shows in the selection of Mexican Fire Agates. Look at these and think what you might make with one or more of them.

Tenacity is a synonym for resolve and also a good term to describe Magpie Gemstones. The company holds tightly to the predominant idea of helping us as customers and values each of us. I think you would be surprised by the way the owners answer questions about this that and the other when customers query. Their "tip of the tongue" knowledge of the gemstone industry follows years and years of research and work in the industry allowing them to easily explain why a stone is cut in a particular manner, why we are having difficulty finding what we are searching for or something else.

So, whether you resolve or make resolutions, Magpie Gemstones hopes you are ready to begin a great new year.

Resolving to help our customers, we are Magpie Gemstones.
