This post is just a little shameless promotion for my friends Kim and Adam over at Fall Hill Bead and Gem. One of the unique things about our area is that the limestone bedrock contains "Herkimer Diamonds". These are quartz crystals that have 17 sides and can only be found here and one other place on earth. Kim and Adam make these into some beautiful wire wrapped jewelry. You can see pictures of the diamonds and jewelry by clicking the link above. You should check it out.
