My name is Cassie, and I'm addicted to gemstones

I might have a small gemstone addiction.

I love holding them, I love working with them, I love buying them. I really love buying them. Heaven help me!

Last Friday, I made a daytrip down to Manhattan (four hours there--thanks, I-95!--3 hours back) and went to just a few of my favorite supply stores. I got metal, findings, and lots and lots of gemstones. Pictured is about 1/3 of my loot. Look at the color! The sparkle! ***happy sigh***

I bought enough that I might be able to put some briolette sets into my LuluBeads etsy shop. Contact me if you're dying to get your hands on some of these. There's Amethyst (green and purple), Chrysoprase, Ametrine, Labradorite, Rutilated Quartz, Golden Rutile, Labradorite, Fluorite, Kyanite....the list goes on. Wheeeeeee! I'm dizzy at the thought.

You're funny! It's the same here!

If that's just 1/3 of your loot, I'd hate to see all you got. I'd have a heart attack from sheer ecstasy!

You have such wonderful taste in gems. The colors are fabulous. The choices you picked are just about all my favorite colors. Yes, I have an addiction too. Let's drink to it! :D

What an addiction to have! I completely understand, though. I love all sorts of gems and crystals!
