A huge CONGRATULATIONS to Diann O. from Florida for winning the Road to Tucson Sweepstakes! Diann and a guest will be heading to Tucson, Arizona for the 2012 Gem and Mineral Show to see thousands of jewelry, beads and gemstones. She will stay in a nice hotel to relax in after hours of walking, shopping and learning new beading techniques!
Diann is a beginning beader; starting just over a year ago when she took a class at a local bead shop to see if she could do it. Of course, she fell in love with beading! Her favorite jewelry to make are bracelets and simple earrings, and loves to sit down to design.
Diann is inspired by her best friend and carpool buddy and makes her a lot of jewelry. She’s hoping to bring her friend along to Tucson. Diann is thrilled and excited to see Arizona (she’s never been) and everything at the shows!
I’m so happy to share my Tucson experience this year and to send someone next year. I recommend attending this event to anyone who loves beads, jewelry, gemstones and fossils. Thanks to everyone who entered the sweepstakes, joined along on the Road to Tucson Virtual Roadtrip and purchased the Tucson Treasures! I hope you enjoyed it.
