Jeri Ann and Roger Golba donated beads
The Broward County Convention
Center was home to the International Gem and Jewelry Show this past weekend,
and there were many shoppers and people who enjoyed all these wonderful
precious goods that dealers had to offer.
you have dedicated beads on the Neverending Necklace to add 14' 8", so it
really was a very successful show. The nicest aspect is your support that
the Necklace has received over the years. Some people have repeatedly
dedicated beads at multiple events, and the bead donations that we are given
help greatly towards reaching our goal.
Watch the advertisement for whenever the International Gem
and Jewelry comes to your town, and make sure you reserve at least one full
day for shopping and browsing.
It always is a fascinating event, not only for jewelry
makers, but also for those who enjoy wearing ready made pieces and want to
keep up to date on the newest colors and styles.
Thank you Jim Reed, Debbie, Sean and everyone at the
International Gem and Jewelry Show!
