Zoanthus Coral

So I got a rock/jewelry tumbler for my birthday.  Excited to try it out, especially to try to tumble some Petoskey stones.  After some research, found a lot of sites that recommend only polishing by hand, as the stones are so soft.  But there are a couple of sites that have some instruction, so I will give it a whirl.  Hand polishing really does a number on my hands!

During my research, I came across a few sites that showed pictures of live coral similar to the coral that Petoskey stones came from.  So cool!

So hopefully soon I will have some more new jewelry to post!

New Petoskey Stone Jewelry

Have a craft show coming up in a couple of weeks, wanted to get some new stuff to take, so I spent the weekend working on some seed bead bracelets and polishing up some Petoskey stones to make some earrings and necklaces.  Note I now offer free domestic shipping in my shop for all orders over $25!

Happy New Year!

And just like that, another year has flown by....

Not much going on in my shop, not feeling very creative so far this year.  Probably because I am still in vacation mode.  We spent a week in Florida over the holidays.  The weather wasn't overly warm, but it was still warmer than the negative temperatures back home!  I collected a lot of seashells, hoping to get some things made with them.

Here's a couple of new things I did get made up, getting ready for Valentine's Day!

Music Heart Pendant

And here's a picture from Florida, dreaming of warmer weather!

Finally Fall - Free Shipping Special

After temperatures being much above average for October, the weather is finally more seasonal.  I went out this last weekend, before it cooled down, and enjoyed the fall colors.  I know most people like the cooler fall weather, but I really enjoyed those 70s and 80s!










New in my shop, pendants made of real maple leaves embedded in resin:
