Quick Update – Sarasota, FL Gem & Jewelry Show


It has been a slow (leisurely) summer but the show season is about to gear up again.

Seriously, if anyone has any tips to keeping your momentum going when you’re too relaxed, please share.

(I have managed to list ONE item in my Etsy shop all week, even vowing that I would churn out a solid few hours to justify the full spa day I took with my family, but no dice!)

The next Gem and Jewelry show in Sarasota is coming up next weekend, August 22-24 and I have been busy curating new treasures to show you.

The venue is the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium at 801 N. Tamiami Trail.
Hours are Fri/Sat/Sun 10am-5pm.

I will be back to post a few preview photos and add details.
I hope you’ve all had a good summer and are savoring the last sweet moments of lazy evenings on the porch.

Save me a mint julep.

Gem and Jewelry Show Oct. 11, 12,13

A reminder for the next show I am doing:

Sarasota Gem, Jewelry and Bead show at the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium

801 N Tamiami Trail, next to the Van Wezel Center.

It’s a Frank Cox event.

We will be there this upcoming Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 11-13, 2013, and if you are local to the area, I hope you can make it.

If you are into jewelry (fine or other) Gemstones, or beads, there is a good selection for you.

Here is a Quick tour of the Show I made at the last one, to give you an idea of what to expect, and the location I am in, in the near Right corner.

I will be bringing some nicer estate pieces, including signed vintage costume jewelry, sterling silver and nice higher end designer pieces.

Photos to follow.


Update: A preview of some items for the show.

I am inclined to say: “Prepare to be impressed”, especially when I think of this remarkable Titanic-worthy 18k diamond and tanzanite necklace, totalling 10 ct in gemstones!

You should know that these are snapshots from my phone and certainly do this piece no justice. You just have to come see it in person.

A stunning, deep blue-purple teardop-cut tanzanite is nestled in a halo of clean, white by round-cut diamonds,

suspended in a Y necklace of bezel-set station diamonds, all the way around.

Tanzanite weight:  3.75 ct.   Diamonds: 7.75ctw

The fact that the diamonds go all the way to the back is uncommon.   Often, to keep labor, manufacturing and selling costs reasonable, the diamonds stop somewhere near the the sides to the back of the neck, where just the metal continues.
