I lost a treasured item this week. See the necklace in the picture above? That was custom made, 14K gold, designed by me, the stone from a period in my life when I worked in Southern Utah, where the only thing to do was haunt rock shops. I had it set as a way to tell myself I could do nice things for myself, once in a while have the better things in life, even though as a single person I'm on my own. This week the necklace got caught on something, one prong was ripped off, and the stone lost, who knows where.
My love of rocks actually goes much further back than my stint in St. George, Utah. I'd collected rocks everywhere I went as a child, and for my sixth grade science project I did a display of my rock collection. I won an honorable mention for it.
So when I lost that stone this week, I really wanted to replace it. I did a google search, and found a really great rock club in my area called Culver City Rocks.
Their 2009 Fiesta of Gems Show will be held Saturday July 11 & Sunday July 12, 2009 at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium, 4117 Overland Ave in Culver City. For more info about the club or the show, check their website here.
