Something new

So I’ve been wrapping a couple of pendants for the past couple of weeks and I have been wanting to make something in line with an amulet. Something different. So with a little weaving and then a little more weaving I have come up with these new two. The first has 2 tourmalines and a Mexican fire opal, the second has a faceted red garnet and blue green piece of apatite.


I am once again addicted to wrapping. Seems like I can’t stop for awhile then I take a break then back to being addicted. Crazy stuff.
Well thanks for stopping by! Hope you get to enjoy the the three day weekend. I know I am. 🙂

More rain!?

Well, no holiday weekend, and rain. No rock fun, other than finishing a couple of wraps. I wrapped a couple of morrisonite cabs that I polished little while back. Here they are.

Hope you had a great weekend!

Druzy pendants

The druzy cabs are awesome. So wrapped in silver they are even prettier. The blues are bright and the crystals very clear. This is a really nice stone to work with. I can’t wait to cut some more. I’m hooked is all I can say. I wore one of these pendants to work and let me just say, it was an attention getter. I love it when people just can’t help but comment on a pendant I’ve made, but all I heard was, love that stone.. yeah, (me too) .. lol. I suppose since I’ve worn it I’ve claimed it.. 🙂

Cabbing Druzy

So I cut the Chrysocolla side of the rock from the prior post. It was a little tough, being that I didn’t want to cut it wrong or lose any of the druzy. I then cabbed it and was really happy with the outcome. I also cabbed a piece Morrisonite that takes a shine like glass with very little effort. Love this stuff. Here’s a few clickable pics.

If you want to buy some awesome druzy, just go to Nuevo Mundo Imports he still has some rough and slabs for now anyway.

New year new outlook

Love these three day weekends.. Wish they were all three dayers. The weather was pretty nice so we got to get out and do a lil rockhounding. Found some nice colored pet wood and just checked out the scenery. I also got to finish a few wraps. Fun weekend so far and another day to go.


Have fun!

In the last few weeks

Its been so hectic. Getting ready for a small Christmas show and then Christmas itself. The boutique turned out ok and it was really fun. I hadn’t set up for one in quite awhile and it turned out pretty good. I wrapped so many pieces that I burned out for a little while it seems. I didn’t even want to look at a piece of wire. So I cabbed a little, very little, went out and found a few pretty rocks. Mostly red jasper and pet wood. Until a few days ago a friend sent a few awesome cabs and wanted one wrapped. I was back into wire. I couldn’t stop! I’m just grateful it was the weekend since I got no sleep. lol I hope he likes his pendant half as much as I like the cab and slabs he sent me. I even got a lil cabbing in today. Looks like I’m slowly getting back in the swing.


Another long weekend coming up.. yay!
Hope this one was great for you.

A little cabbing and weaving

Just a little that is. Time has not been a friend, but I have been able to get a few things done. I cabbed a couple of Malachite cabs and although it was messy, I really like this stuff. Its pretty soft material and it takes a good shine. I cabbed a Morgan HIll poppy jasper and dino bone cab but the pictures, didn’t turn out so well. I also wrapped a couple of pendants. A dino bone and a turquoise pendant.


Well hope you had a great weekend and have a great week to come!!
