Therefore, I do not have a business license (maybe in the future?)
which would gain me access to some shows.
Print yourself up a good quantity of business cards which clearly
show your involvement in the jewelry industry, Most shows only
require a business card for registration.
The "Whole-sale only" shows have more strict registration

Come by and see us in the GJX show in Booth # 205 - Lowe Associates
- Brasil February 3 - 8th for all of the Brazilian colored stones
and also Persian Turquoise. The GJX show is probably the best
one-stop show in Tucson.
You can find stones, findings, diamonds, some beads, and already
made up jewelry. And it is right downtown.
Other good shows for loose stones are the Riverpark show and the 22nd
street show (free parking here) - and all of the motel shows west
