2012 Tucson Show Update: Week 1

Tucson Show Update #1
January 27, 2012
Good morning from Tucson, where it’s expected to be 74° today and clear, sunny skies! I’m thrilled to be back here in Tucson for the world-famous gem, mineral, and fossil shows – usually at least 60 individual shows will be held during January and February! We arrived yesterday, and today is all about setting up our booth and classes area for our sister site, JewelryTools.com, who is hosting 120+ classes over the next couple weeks. I can’t wait to meet all the instructors and explore as many shows as I can!
We’re based out of Kino Sports Complex, at the Tucson Electric Park (TEP) Gem & Mineral Show. While the show doesn’t open until Saturday, when it will be free to the public (and free parking!), I thought I’d wander through the show while people set up their booths and show you what I found. Some vendors have been here for days or even weeks already, setting up their marvelous stock of gems! Take a look:
We’ve got a busy day of setting up ahead of us, but I’ll be in touch again with LOTS more pictures and exciting gem & mineral updates from the show in the weeks to come!
Gem profiles by Dale “Cougar” Armstrong will resume after the Tucson shows.
By the way: there’s still time to discover the world of Jewelry-Making in terrific Tucson, Arizona! January 28 – February 12, choose from full-day and half-day classes that will transform your jewelry-making forever! In media including wire wrapping, beading, etching, resin, polymer clay, metal clay, chainmaille, and even more, just stop by JewelryTools.com’s Tool Tent #ES 14 at the TEP Gem & Mineral Show at Kino Sports Complex.
