Rust Vanadinite, Amethyst geodes, Blue Chrysocolla-Malachite (AZ)
2 - 3 inch Pyrite eggs and balls from Peru sparkle in the sun ...
Exquisite faceted Japanese pearls play with the lights above ...
A table groans from the heaping piles of turquoise beads ...
     



THESE MARBLE LIKE GLOBES BAFFLED ME ...
... each looking like a little world that one might pluck out of the sky, each with a history of its own - lakes oceans, rivers, land! The imagination runs wild! Then one could wonder, if this was a peek into the workshop of the Lord!
         
Like big blue marbles, these balls range from 2in to 8in across -
They look ready to be launched into a starry sky ...
terra firma and water seem to mingle on each global surface ...
great continents cut into shape by blue waterways ...
    



EACH COLOR IN KAREN LEWIS' BEADS BELOW
... is a different piece of clay - we fell in love with her work and have enjoyed incorporating these rare gems into our gallery collections of rosaries, chaplets and jewelry. New Clay is tougher than glass!
    
Hand made Klew beads are very detailed ...
A box of Klew beads waiting to be purchased ...
      

 

A FAVORITE STOP IS ALWAYS BEAUCOUP CONGE' 
...  to see Tomas and his newest collection of antique beads. Here above are some of those antique beads we should have never left behind! What was the matter with us!!!!! Long gone and never to return as those markets are drying up in Europe.
     
Tomas or David will tell you the history of these old beads ...
... from Austria, Germany or Czechoslovakia and how they are made.
