NYC shopping


#1

Hi All, Yeah, I’m going to NYC for Christmas! I will have one day to
go shopping, and I would like to buy semi-precious beads. Any
suggestions for must-hit shops? Thanks, Karin

Metalliferous’ “bead annex” (and their main store, as well).

Have fun and expect to spend at least an hour or two in there.

Hi Karin -

At gem shows, I have had positive experiences and purchased good
quality semi-precious beads from Oriental Gemco in New York.

Hi Karin, METALLIFEROUS @ 34 W 46th St. has just opened a new wing
to their jewelry supply store that includes semiprecious stones.
Good prices and a fun store. When you pay, ask for Anthony. Tell him
that June sent you. I was his art teacher in elementary school. That
is my only connection to the store. Actually, I hope it doesn’t get
you thrown out.

Next on my list is Universal Stone @4 w.47th St. The booth is #108.
This fellow has painstakingly measured 100s of tiny stones for me to
make perfect matches in settings. He will work on the spot with you,
or for a big order will work on them over a day or so and ship.

I will be here during that week in December if you want to connect
with me for my info. Just reach me by email at RJTwin@aol.com.

Have fun, June
