International Gem Show = Design Heaven

Posted on

As you know Golden Plume is all about gold and natural stones creations. As you can imagine when I heard about the Natural Gem Fair rolling into town I was hands down gitty! The idea of coming home with bags of gems and natural stone to create jewelry with made me feel like this could be the best day ever.

On sunday I attended the International Gem Show in Santa Monica, California. I can honestly say the second I stepped into the Civic Center auditorium which was hosting this lavish event I was elated with excitement.

Hundreds of vendors from all around the world set up their tables, packed full of sparkling, glittering gemstones and natural beads. Like a kid in a sugar factory I just danced from table to table with glee. Gold painted Amethyst, Quartz the size of a dining room table, precious stones from Africa, Brazil and Asia all lined the rows we walked.  My boyfriend was there to restrain any purchases that would lead to buyer’s remorse later however I was able to snag some incredible finds for Golden Plume’s latest spring line. From balls of gold flaked Pyrite from Australia to hand cut Amazonite beads from Brazil It’s safe to say I scored some seriously exciting materials to create necklaces and earrings abound.

Today is finally the day I can sit down and start designing with these truly unique gems and I’m super excited to commence the process and share with you the final products on Golden Plume’s Etsy shop. Stay tuned! In the meantime, here are a few photos of this magical show and its wonderful treasures:
