Gem Show

11/19 & 11/20/11    South Florida Fairgrounds, West Palm Beach, FL

 

 

A booth by the Palm Beach Museum of Natural History

 

A Feast of Rocks, Gems, Minerals, Fossils and Beads

Can you believe that this was the 45th Annual Show for this busy South Florida Club?

The Gem and Mineral Society of the Palm Beaches has been organizing the annual show for a long time, so it's no surprise that it has become a well-run and much visited event.

Thanks to Barbara Ringhiser, Jeff Ursillo, Jen Ursillo, Mary Barrenechea, Ellen Jean and countless club member volunteers, this spectacle is successful and enjoyable for everybody involved.

And it's also been ten years since the Neverending Necklace was a part of this fantastic show for the first time.

302 beads were dedicated during this event!

Of course it's great to see familiar people coming to visit the Neverending Necklace booth, but it is also a pleasure to have met so many "new" people who dedicated beads.

A special "Thank You" to Jen Ursillo, who donated her first hand made and very charming glass beads to the necklace - a meaningful gesture indeed.

In the same fashion it was very nice to see Courtney Tavares who had previously donated beads to the project and who donated more of her beautiful creations.
