Kevin O’Grady Came Home with Me

Standard

This past weekend was a trip down to Tucson for the Gem and Mineral show.   This show runs for two weeks every year, starting the end of January and going through the second week of February.

Calling it a “show” is a bit of a misnomer.  The whole of downtown Tucson is turned into a sea of Gem and Mineral vendors.  You can find anything from the most gorgeous finished jewelry, to all the necessary parts to make your own – including but not limited to smelting your own metals or blowing your own glass beads.

I saw the Kevin O’Grady bracelets pictured above last year, and have thought, some would say obsessed, about them ever since.  This year, under strict instructions from Prince Charming, one of them came home with me.

It’s the one on the left, though my color-way is more green than blue.  I tried to photograph mine, but no luck.  The flash either bounces too much light, or not enough.  Anyway, suffice to say that it is lovely, and I am very fortunate.

Prince Charming has excellent taste in gifts.
