This years show was my first time going to the AGTA show. My Dave had gone the year I was taking PMC certification at RioGrande's Catalog In Motion. This show specifically caters to those interested in very high end gems and pearls.
But, I came across a vendor with absolutely gorgeous strands of semi-precious beads. The vendor's name is Lucoral & Lupearl from New York. Their beads were beyond gorgeous even! =)
I purchased two strands of Botswana Agate, and a strand of Black Mother Of Pearl. The flash on the MOP is stunning! And the Botswana Agate has color unlike any I've seen before! =)
