My trip to Tucson!

so, it's almost valentine's day, and I went to Arizona for the biggest gem and jewelry show in the world! It was pretty wild, and especially great because I went with my dad (a jeweler) and we stayed with my uncle in Arizona (a jeweler) and visited my cousins' studios (jewelers) and gossiped about jewelry and jewelers the whole time. It was a blast. Here are some pics!

Let's see... (in chronological order)

My pops exiting our favorite bar in Jerome, Arizona, called the Spirit Room.

Sweet mirror deer sculpture

Purple Cactus

I mean... come on. 

A crazy expensive drusy mouse carved by some crazy german stone cutters.

So many beads.

I got ben a coon's skin hat at this weird Idaho fur tent called Fur for Fun (sorry peta!) and they had loads of crazy things with faces and feet still on them! 

I got some fiiiiiiine iron pyrite for rings that will soon be available exclusively on Molten Store

Neat mural in Tucson.

Early mornin' coffee.

Mammoth Tusk??


Prettttty excited to use these.

Then I got home and made some things like this:

And I got a haircut! and color! 

And I sewed up a ton of Stitchtagram pillows:

Aaaand that's about it! hopefully this week after V Day I'll make a whole slew of new drusy bits! Keep your eyes peeled kiddos! 


  1. That looks like a heck of a time! I'm officially adding the Tuscon Gem Show to my to-do-pre-death list. That big amethyst cathedral is crazy. Also, your haircut looks really great!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous gemstones! Lucky you, wished I was there.
