  1. DUDE!!!! Gemstones!!! AAAGGGGGHHHHH!!!! The cheapness of it all!!!!! The torture!!!!

    What’s a jewelry designer got to do get some of that stuff? On a somber note, what about customs? There are some laws under the Patriot Act enabling the FBI to monitor how much a jeweler brings in country and where they’ve been…gemstones being a good source of producing money for terrorist groups and all. 😉
