Gem Shows & Upcoming Events


I hope that everyone is having an amazing summer thus far! In Minnesota, we are enjoying the beautiful sunshine, lakes, and walking. We never take our summers for granted as they seem to come and go so quickly here. 

I wanted to write this blog to take a moment thank all of you for the tremendous success that we have seen both on the website and with our in-person sales. We've enjoyed getting to know many of our clients and we can't wait to get to know all of you better. Continue to 'Like', Share, and talk about our business when you can as that continues to drive awareness of our little shop. 

The spring and summer have been busy for us and we were able to get out of state to a few gem and mineral shows. We attended the International Gem & Jewelry Show in Chicago, IL as well as the Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee, WI. My daughter-in-law, Christina, and I have been busy planning out the fall and are deciding what shows we plan to attend next. We're hoping to get to Arizona or Colorado to continue our hunt for beautiful minerals, gems, facets, leather, and chain. We're continuing to create new and unique pieces that we know all of you will love.

I also wanted to let all of you know that we are working on getting out more in the community so that you can also shop from us in person. We will be at Dellwood Country Club (reserved for members and guests) on July 12th and are also looking at partnering with local Minneapolis businesses (date and location to be announced soon), where you can find us out at public events. There will be at least one date in July where we will be at a public event, so keep watching the site and Facebook for additional details. 

Lastly, brides-to-be it's wedding season and we couldn't be more excited and happy for you! With that in mind, jewelry can be daunting for a bride...but remember, we're here for you! We specialize in custom wedding jewelry and would love to help you create unique pieces for you and your bridal party. Send us an email at to begin the creation of your custom pieces! 

Have a safe and wonderful holiday weekend.
