rock it

 Still addicted to drilling... I want a full strand of those stones...
 A little experiment, a pebble set in clay and then fired... was a bit scared it might explode in the kiln, it did not... will make some more...
Tiny raw garnets from Gayle... to set in clay maybe... aren't they gorgeous? Thank you so much Gayle... :)

the garnets are lovely! i can relate to the feeling of turning anything into a bead with a drill. underwater (glass, stone), above ground (peach pits, drift wood). just a delight. love the pendant. <3

Love your rocks.....can't wait to see what you do with the garnets.

Great drilling. It must take a modicum of patience and just the right pressure I imagine in addition to anchoring your piece to be drilled. That strand is wonderful. Will you be leaving it as a necklace or using the beads individually?
Just beautiful.

Your 'rocklace' is fabulous. The accoutrement for today's fashionable cave woman.
