Happy Holidays to you all – November marks the beginning of the season – it’s my favorite season – it’s that time of the year when we get to throw our diets out the window.
I am excited to spend Thanksgiving weekend with you all. I will be on air just after Turkey day – and boy, oh boy, have we put some fun items together for you. Tune in and start your holiday shopping early.
We are launching a new size of the Jay King Sculptured Bowl – make sure to check hsn.com regularly to get your chance to order one.
The look book items are fun and versatile. I have posted a picture of “Three Finger’s Butte”, which is located in Eastern Oregon. This is where “Wildhorse Jasper” is mined. Three Fingers Butte can be seen from over 50 miles away in almost any direction. This jasper has patterns that mimic the vast high desert vistas of the area where it was found. Because of the popularity of stones that resemble landscapes, a “picture jasper” rush started in the area. Dozens of deposits were discovered and claimed. The largest deposit was found in the center of the canyon and called Wildhorse Picture Jasper – it was called Wildhorse after the herd of wild horses that still inhabit and roam this remote canyon. Wild Horse is just one of the stones featured in the multistone necklace that was selected for the “Look Book” for November.

Eagle Eye has come to us from Brazil. Brazil is the 5th largest country in the world. The material was discovered in the rain forest of the Amazon River which occupies all of the north and north central portions of Brazil. The material was named because the miner felt like it was like the eye of the eagle standing out from the dark forest.
Bonito Opalite is from Benito Juarez located in Chihuahua Mexico. The miner grew up in the region as a cowboy. Since his father was a miner – he had grown up looking for treasures on his rides. The miner discovered this unique find while out riding his horse.
Red Forest Agate is mined in Liaoning Province in China, which is located in North Eastern China. Liaoning Province is famous for falling meteorites. The heaviest one fell to earth about 1.9 billion years ago. The material is names Red Forest Agate because of its bright red color and the beautiful pattern that appears in the stone.
I did want to extend a special “Thank you” for the heart felt thank you note to my team and myself thanking us for bringing the Sculptured Bowl to HSN, please help me send good vibes to Darlene in her new home that took 4 years to rebuild after Hurricane Katrina had destroyed it – “Welcome Home” Darlene!
By the time you are reading this I will be on my way over seas on an exploring trip – I can’t wait to share my new stories with you and let you know what amazing finds I have found. I will be out of the country for three weeks, so I will not be able to write any answers to your blog posts until I return.
I am looking forward to being with you during the holiday weekend – make sure to tune in on November 28th.
