It depends on where you go. If you come to us you are going to get either crystals or fresh water pearls. I am sure there are people out there who also use resin or other components in their jewelry. It's hard to say. I mean, you can go to any bead store, craft store, or art store and get little pieces in a box to do it yourself. It's very crafty. If you go a bead shop, you are able to get semi-precious stones, crystals, and gold or silver wire. You can pretty much do anything you see yourself. You can go to a lot of the trade shows and see people who have sat in their living room and made jewelry by themselves, which is great.
