THE TUCSON TANGO

THE TUCSON TANGO

Tucson is a fast paced thrilling gem hunt.  I arrived in the desert having no expectations of what the week would bring, except for reconnecting with friends over lingering breakfasts and delicious dinners. 

I love to dance the Tucson Tango,  but it's easy to get thrown off beat. Motels converted into gem shops, tent after tent of mineral in multiple shows, overwhelmed and exhausted because treasure is hidden in every single one. In order to stay within the rhythm of my collection, I was careful with my purchases.  For me, this also includes with whom I spend my time, and do business with.  Good energy carries all the way through to the finished piece, and into the lives of my collectors.  I am careful in every selection I make. 

Gemstones from around the world in their various forms are inspiring, but I found my true inspiration within the souls of the people I had the pleasure of spending time with. It was a magical trip of friendship, laughter, and passion, so when the music stopped and I packed up my dancing shoes, well, the Tucson withdrawal was real.    

I purchased stones. I shopped for my collectors. I brought home specimens for my kids. I took a restorative detour to Miraval to reconnect with myself. And, I can't wait to do it again next year.

I handed over the keys to the gallery this past weekend, an intentional long goodbye.  Someone I have a deep respect for once said, “You should always leave something better than when you found it”. And, so, I have.
