NONE. Seattle Gem & Mineral Show is on hiatus until further notice.

Official Statement:

Last year’s LIFE:FORMS Festival (Seattle Unique Boutique + Seattle Gem & Mineral Show) ended 2017 on such a high note. It was a spectacular show, and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. What an experience to be able to create such a magical space, and work with such incredible vendors, artists, musicians, and attendees. Thank you all for helping to co-create that memory. Every time I think back to it, I have nothing but joy and gratitude for the entire process, and for everything I learned along the way.

In my own life, things got pretty tough this winter. It’s forced me to reevaluate a lot of things in my life. After much deliberation, I have decided not to proceed with LIFE:FORMS Festival for 2018. I will likely be putting on a gem show that same weekend, but doing the full-scale show (art, gems, multiple music stages, activities, performers) is out of reach for my current bandwidth and ability.

I appreciate you so much for helping see this vision come this far, and for believing in what I can accomplish (with a LOT of help, of course). I do not see this as a failure, but as a change in direction. I’ll be paring back for a little while to sharpen my tools. I look forward to bringing you something new, crisp, innovative, and beautiful.

Thank you for your kindness, understanding, and support. I look forward to sharing my next evolution with you, and introducing “new me” to “new you” – let’s expand together and see what beauty unfolds!

For now, keep an eye out for Crystallography inventory shows, and Crystallography Gem + Mineral Market events (highly curated gem/mineral/rock shows).

Thank you, always, for inspiring me to be a better version of myself.
All My Love,
Michelle Ferris
