Kempton Park Rock'n'Gem fair

I've never been to a rock'n'gem fair before so when I found out that there was one on at Kempton Park a weekend I was planning on being in London anyway I jumped at the chance. Especially as the friend I was seeing was busy all day on Sun.

So many gorgeous, shiney, pretties!! I could have spent thousands! Here're some pics of the gorgeous bits I got. I'm going to have so much funfun making jewellery with it- when I'm feeling brave enough that is!

Kinda top to bottom: brown and red tiger's eye; green amber; smoky quartz drops and cuboid beads; cracked rock crystal nugget beads; labradorite cabochons; rutilated quartz teardrop cabochon; ruby in zoisite nugget; ametrine facetted stone; two stands of lava rock beads; ammonite pair; and opal rough bits.

Pyrite sun: I had no intention of buying decorative stuff but couldn't resist when I saw this. The photo doesn't do it any justice really. Its simply gorgeous. Got to think about where to display it.

I also picked up some slices of tiger's eye, labradorite and picture jasper whick I'm going to cut up and play with just  to experiment really. I have no experience cutting stone but wanna play to see what happens. They were cheap so it doesn't matter if I mess it up!

Coming soon (hopefully): jewellery made from these bits in my (currently empty) folksy shop!!

Wow! You found loads of gorgeous stuff! I'm looking forward to seeing jewellery you make with them in your folksy shop :)
By the way, my folksy site is almost empty too, only one item in there. hehe
