    Hi my name is Valerie Huddleston, and, I am from the Outer Banks of North Carolina, home of the Lost Colony (The first settlers to reach land in the New World) the Wright Brothers Memorial (Known for the first plane ever to be flown in North America) and best of all Black Beards Treasure (Historians believe it to be buried somewhere near the Pamlico Sound. As a girl I heard many stories of the Outer Banks history from my family. I was fascinated by these tall tales of mysterious disappearances, planes being flown off of the very sand dunes on which we played and the constant thoughts of finding Black Beards treasure. They gave me this incredible idea that I was going to travel the world, discovering new things and telling the stories of my experiences. Little did I know I would embark on so many adventures.

    I was offered a job at the age of 19 traveling the East Coast, working for a Jewelry company (Accents in Sterling) and selling sterling silver jewelry at various Trade Shows. This lead to a trip to Tucson Arizona in 1993 as a sales rep at the International Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. I knew immediately that this is what I wanted to do with my life. At the time I wasn't sure what role this amazing world of Gems and Minerals would play, but it wasn't long before I started buying barrels of rocks and minerals and selling my own stock at trade shows under the name Scenes by Nature. Twenty years later I am still buying and selling rocks and minerals but, on a much larger scale, instead of only buying at the world renowned Tucson Show. I have expanded my buying trips to places like Central America, Morocco and Europe. I am sure you can enjoy my travels with me, by adding to your collection the very things I travel for!
