Ahoi hoi all in bead land,
I know I just started this blog, so I haven't really earned my vacation hours. However, I just moved to a new country, started a new job, and lost a very good friend. I am, in a word, pooped. But I promise I will be back soon soon with new gemstones to share, and hopefully some new bead projects to share. Until then, I hope you are all wonderful and beading away.

Ahoi hoi out there in bead land. This Friday's gem is going to be pretty short. I have just completed a move half-way around the world, and can honestly say I'm beat. I've been living in a hotel out of suitcases for the past three days, and my stones are a bit scattered. I won't leave you hanging completely though. The stone for today is
Ok, why sodalite? Well, years ago when I first started working with gems, a friend told me that sodalite is a travel stone. Since that day, I've carried a piece with me at all times to ensure safe travels from point a to b. So, in honor of my recent trip, I invite you all to go out and pick up a piece of this beautiful blue stone. Maybe it will lead you to discover somewhere new.
