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 !
