LOL!   saved2

Of course I do have to ask why you are parting ways with such a lovely loom.  They are not easy items to come by!

When do you need this piked up by?  Any specific date?
I'm trying to arrange a roadtrip.

Soooooo ........  when do you want to come pick it up?


Let me talk to the powers that be - My road trip buddies that is - to see when I could potentially grab this. 
That is going to be the deciding factor - if I can get up there or not.

Holy crap!
Where are you located?
How much?
I had to leave my 48 inch 4 harness loom back east in my Parents garage...

White Quartz is gorgeous.
I have a few cabs of it cut by Connie.  She called it "Bull quartz." 
It's great paired with silver and since it's a neutral color it pairs well with a lot of other gemstones.

Folks I have both sent George a PM and an email and am awaiting a reply.
In the meantime you can certainly contact me if you need anything and I will do my best to try to help you and to pop in here a bit more regularly.

I'm still alive.

It's gorgeous.   yes

That shape, which I call an "axe" shape is one of my favorite shapes in beads and cabochons and not nearly enough folks make them.  It seems some folks are scared of the concave cutting and sanding.  You did a killer job on that Morrisonite, so your client should be thrilled.   yes

Search engines are tricky.  If you don't know how to use qualifiers in the search, or don't use the images to help you, sometimes it is a hit or miss venture.

Qualifiers such as you "don't want treated material?"  So you enter "Black stone -untreated"   The qualifier is the minus sign with the "qualification" you are looking for, or in some cases, what you don't want...

Hope that helps.

I often will scan the images that come up as a listing near the top of the search because it may give me better results.

Bumping this so the new people see it.
13  General Forum Information and Guides / Forum Related Announcements / A Couple Changes on: October 29, 2015, 12:35:57 pm
I will not be coming around much at all for quite a while.  My Health has shown small improvement but now I am dealing with health issues with my Husband.

That said I have made a couple changes to help y'all out a bit..

1) Redrockrods is now the official Moderator of the contest area.  I made sure to fix that today so he can edit the posts in there and set up polls and pin the topics etc.  If you have contest questions, he is your go-to.

2) I have removed myself as the listed moderator for the Contest forum and the Jewelry area of the forum.

As always should you have an urgent need, please, do NOT contact me because I am not around.  I resigned as admin last year.  I pop in only now and then when I have a moment.

That said feel free to contact Taogem for any admin related problems, or the other moderators - Michael Hoover, Hummingbirdstones, and Catmandew.  They are your go-to folks if you have any problems.

Thanks, and happy rocking!

I really, REALLY REALLY dislike it when I delete someones sales posts due to it being in violation of forum rules and then they pull this full on malarky.  Congrats on being the first person to be banned by me in over a YEAR!

I'm a RETIRED INACTIVE ADMIN.  I really don't have time to deal with this behavior.  I come on here when notices hit my email that something has been reported and I certainly don't appreciate some of the behavior that mimics high school.  We are adults.  Act like one.

I'm bumping this as there have been a few members recently who may not have seen it.
