The 51st Annual Gemstone, Mineral, Bead, Fossil & Jewelry Show

Hello everyone,

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the 51st Annual Gemstone, Mineral, Bead, Fossil & Jewelry Show presented by The Gem & Mineral Society of the Palm Beaches, Inc. in South Florida. It was a phenomenal event with no shortage of attendees. Dozens of vendors from different parts of the state had gathered to display and sell jewelry, handcrafted goods, and other collectibles. There were demonstrations on jewelry making, jewelry art showcases, and a fossil exhibit with dinosaur bones. 

My favorite vendor was We Rock Rocks. It was the only vendor that sold beaded bracelets and stone pendulums. I bought two pendulums and a bracelet. When I got home, I discovered that one of the pendulums could separate into a bracelet and a pendant. I attached the pendant to my necklace chain and I'm wearing the bracelet on my wrist. Kudos to We Rock Rocks for their products!

Here are some photographs that I took from the event. I'm looking forward to attending the 52nd Annual Gemstone, Mineral, Bead, Fossil & Jewelry Show next year!
