No pictures yet...

But...

My jeweler called me to tell me my wax is ready.

AND

I got a total of 38 stones in the mail.


Pictures will be up after I go by the jewelry store.

OMG I'm SO excited.

Ditto - since when you hid 38 stones up in your sleeve? Winter is over you know, and the sleeves are getting shorter

If you want any pics of any specific stones, let me know...

This is what I saw after I opened up his package. He (Barry) didn''t send them in boxes because...well there are 38 of them and he''s running low on boxes. Soooo....I had to rearrange my stones so I could fit them into boxes...

Ok I love that teeny tanga garnet! The emerald cut tourmalines are making my heart pitter patter, too.
