Pssst! Wanna buy some gem stones?

Permalink: http://paul.us2uk.eu/?x=entry:entry100823-222437

In case there’s anyone out there in jewellery-making land who is interested here are some photos of some stones which my father-in-law grinds and polishes. He’s an old-school architect by trade but these days he does his best to make a living by producing these and selling them at the local open-air arts & crafts market, here in Tbilisi.

I’m not an expert on these things, but I’d be happy to take enquiries and act as his agent if anyone’s interested (he’s a Russian speaker). I have friends who return home to the UK fairly frequently, though there are plenty of people here from other countries too so postage costs would be minimal.

Support our caregiving

If you found anything on this site of use, interesting, or even mildly amusing then please consider dropping a few pennies in the jar to help us to take care of our disabled son who contracted encephalitis in 2007 at the age of 6 and who is now confined to a wheelchair. He is getting bigger as his mother and I get older, imagine that, please. Every penny we collect goes towards his upkeep, and towards his future care requirements.

Thank you.
