|We just love it in the Rockies|
It has been 20 years since I, personally, have vacationed in the Rockies, and the significance of being back in the mountains again was healing and amazing. Even being back at Dick's really reminded me of some key childhood connections. I can credit this shop with significantly adding to my interest in geology at a young age - an interest that never really had a chance to take root until I started making jewelry and learning about stones again.
Even though they started in 1939, the business has been handed down through the family and is still truly a small, family-owned business. They are quite unique, and an exciting find. So here's the plug - if you find yourself out at Estes Park, Colorado, you'll have to check them out for yourself.

And the first question out of my mouth when I got there this time? What else - "Do you have any beads?"
