Jewelry designer retiring after 20+ years with lots of great bargains on components and supplies

I'm finally putting away my pliers, wire cutters, etc. and am selling all of my accumulation of stones, beads, chain, leather components, findings (both precious metal and base metal) and much too much to list here. I have been providing jewelry to high-end boutiques and some galleries for many years and reached an age where my eyes are not willing to continue. I know it's difficult during this crazy COVID period with hardly any gem shows and I certainly miss going to the Tucson shows which…

After having an Endoscopy which didn't show anything, my doctor sent me for a Colonoscopy. The result was finding a lemon size tumor and they wouldn't let me leave the hospital, scheduling me for…
