Denver Gem Show

Its that time of year again! The Denver Gem Show where we work with Avant Mining, a Quartz mining company out of Jessieville Arkansas. This year we were set up at the National Western Complex building across from the Denver Coliseum as well as at the Fine Show in the Denver Marriot West.


At the Avant booth we showcase high quality clear Quartz, Smoky Quartz, Turquoise, Wavellite, Titanium Quartz, and Iron-oxide Quartz all from Arkansas. Avant Mining has the world’s highest quality, optical or ‘water clear’ Quartz including Lemurian Quartz. “Avant Mining has over 11,400 acres of land and 20 crystal mines in Arkansas. “- information from their website .

Here are a few of the pieces that were available

We have an incredible crew with Avant, all are hard-working, knowledgeable and lovable individuals that together, make an amazing team.

As we were working for Avant we were also selling our jewelry and connecting to other artists and wire wrappers who would stop by the booth. It may not have been the best show in terms of selling our jewelry, but the networking, connections and friendships that were made was invaluable. Being able to see so many pieces of wire art in person that we have seen online was such an inspiration, as was meeting so many artists that we look up to such as:

@theartofwire @bd_mastermind @wolfmanssun_wraps @the_kind_mind@three_d_graffiti @topknotconcepts @no7glass @craftyfingasand all the other amazing artists that I did not get a picture with like @sagestormdesigns @wirefiretim @d.a.s.hdesigns @death_by_daisy

All in all it was an amazing show and we cannot wait until we see everyone at the Tucson Gem show in January!
