Yarragon Annual Gem Show

18 01 2010

Just over an hour east of my place in Melbourne is Yarragon (on the way to Traralgon). It’s a cute little village, and their annual gem show on 16/17th January 2010 was a good excuse for a quick morning drive.

I was there pretty early on the Saturday, and spent a little time wandering around. There were more mineral type stands than cut gems, and there were facet-ing demonstrations. I found some little gems that came home with me (from K.A.B. Form). I haven’t done a lot of gem setting, so will save these until I have just the right project and skills…

little sapphires and onyx

All in all a lovely morning out in the sunshine.
