Here are the beads I brought home from this weekend's Intergem show in Austin. I was on the lookout for red coral and happily found some at good prices. Then I saw kyanite, turquoise, faceted onyx, aquamarine and apatite strands I couldn't leave behind. I did pass on the large, chunky rough amber beads I would love to have just for me. I couldn't justify spending that much for a personal treat right now, though.
I bought some colored wire also. I'll post the wire later this week. What beads/stones are you hunting for this spring?
