Drooling on jewels. Ahem. I mean, work in progress.

Blue chalcedony with fabulous inclusions…iron and some green & yellow unknowns, Honey Calcite, Yellow Jade, a little glass and some crystals, a consider-this spread of beads…and I’m waiting for BeadFX to send me grey opal and deep purple crystals. Click to enlarge!

Now. If I can just perfect the pattern, we’re all set!

And by the way folks. Anyone out there know about lapidary? I have a great source for tumbled stones, really gorgeous big chunky ones, all kinds of exotic stone – and I keep thinking that if they only had holes drilled through them, they’d be fantastic focal beads.
