Ireland Tour Day 1

Connemara marble - the only place in the world to get green marble. Here is a pile of raw uncut marble.

It is cut and polished to produce fine jewelry pieces. I bought quite a few in sterling silver and a worry stone.

Next stop was the Connemara Celtic Crystal Shop. Here they blow glass and then cut it to make crystal. We had a demonstration of a bowl being created. See Bonnie Hunter in the pink top with a black sweater?

Dinner with Bonnie Hunter and Eleanor Burns. Lovely ladies and fun too.

A great day full of fun!
