Istanbul bead shopping

I have been bead shopping in Istanbul already twice.  Of course you can find a variety of
gemstones and great items in the 'Grand Bazaar' but my favorite place is the Marputcular Is Merkezi.
A variety of little shops selling gemstones, beads and craftmaterials all kind.


My friend Marinka was in Istanbul and brought me these special gemstones.


And I made another 'Les Doux & Durs' with it !

Hoop toch ook nog eens naar Istanbul te kunnen gaan, met een dikke portemonnee uiteraard, zodat er goed kan geshopt worden...

Now I am sure that if I went to Turkey or Istanbul, I will want to start buying beads again :D
Those green shades are really very lovely.
