With the end of the 2024 Tucson Gem Show season, I’m constantly looking forward to next years Show. My New Year doesn’t start on Jan. 1st, it starts the first day after the Gem Show. I’ve collected some beautiful specimens and new figures to work with all year, and I’m already thinking of how I can use them in my work. So I’m sure I’ll be very busy all year creating new pieces.
As  I finish new pieces, I’ll put them up on my site, so I hope you’ll give it a look from time to time throughout the year. And please let me know if you’d ever want to purchase any of my pieces for yourself, or for that one-of-a-kind gift for someone special. Thanks for visiting my site. Have a wonderful , and safe year.

Best Show On Earth Approaches

December 26, 2023 by Tom

As February approaches, many folks are gearing up for the best Gem and Mineral Show on Earth as it comes to Tucson, Arizona. I myself have been working all year long on new pieces and, as always, I’m looking forward to adding them to the incredible variety of Earth’s treasures, and going to just a few of the many Shows to view, and buy, new material for my future pieces.
I’ll be at the TGMS Show, at the Tucson Convention Center, from Feb. 8 thru 11, and I’ll be be in booth #1401. I hope you’ll stop by my booth and say hello. I’m sure you’ll find something extraordinary for yourself, or as a gift.  Thanks for visiting my site.

My Turn

July 30, 2023 by Tom

     We all have accidents in our lives. Whether it may be a slip and fall, a bicycle crash, a sports injury, or some other awful incident.
My turn came at the end of April. While sitting in my car, waiting for the traffic light to change, I was “T”boned in my drivers side door by another car traveling at highway speed.
     I was broken up pretty badly, but wasn’t killed.  I’ve spent many months recovering, and while still not 100%, I’ve been able to get back to making some new pieces for the Tucson 2024 Gem Show. Continue reading

My New Year Begins

March 1, 2023 by Tom

Now that the 2023 Tucson Gem Shows have come and gone, It’s never too early for me to start making new pieces for 2024. I usually get behind on other home projects and things as the Show approaches, so I have a little catching up to do on those items before I can start, and devote all my attention, to my new pieces.

Show Season Approaches

December 2, 2022 by Tom

The only place I actually show my work, other than on line, is the Tucson Gem Show, so when the dates get closer I start putting things in order and preparing.
I’ve been working very hard all year on new pieces. I’ve worked all Summer on just two of them, using some new materials and techniques, which have worked out very well, and add another dimension to the pieces.
The 2023 TGMS Show will, once again, be at the Tucson Convention Center, Feb. 9th thru 12th. My booth will be in aisle 14, Booth #1401. I hope you will stop by my booth and check out my work. If you like something different, and one-of-a-kind, I’m sure I’ll have that special piece your looking for.
Thanks for visiting my site and I hope to see you at the Show.      Tom
