this past weekend i attended one of my favorite events in Alabama
at the beautiful Tannihill State Park called the Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Show.
though this trip was my 3rd year i had a different mission than just perusing for personal bargains, i was on the hunt for SUPPLIES.
in my previous post i mentioned that i have projects in the works and for these projects i needed to scout out some beads, bones, fur, stones, trinkets as well as pendants. trust me, i hit the jackpot!
i scooped up a bolo tie for myself, it’s not pictured but is pretty darn cool. the main piece is an arrow head with a pendant in the center with foolsgold flacks inside and the tie is khaki and the caps are gold.
hippy wizard heart throb!
my look- Michael Kors dress, Anthropologie hat, vintage bag
his look- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles belt buckle, vintage hat, magic
this sweet mineralogist showed me a gorgeous mineral wrap that a friend gifted her, i thought her flare was super rad and asked if i could be in the rock club.
fine Southern concessions // fresh water shells
Zuni ring i picked up from my last trip to the show a few years back.
here’s some of my loot! pre-shopping my aunt July gave me loads of cool stuff like the antlers, geese feathers and stones-all acquired from their land in Alabama. the fur, water buffalo teeth and some of the crystals i bought plus there is supplies not photographed. also picked up a few strands of the howlite dyed skulls which will come in handy especially for the dream catchers
…..can’t wait to get to CRAFTING!
