Petrified Wood Necklace

Doesn't this cabochon look like a stone? Well - surprise - it's not!! It is actually petrified wood from Arizona. Well, technically, when wood petrifies it becomes stone through a mineralization process. So technically this is "stone" but it was originally wood. Amazing that a piece of wood changes over time to this! The strap has carnelian round beads that match the cab perfectly....

Blue Lace Agate Fringed Necklace

One of my favorite colors is blues (my other favorite is purples). So I can't get enough of the stones with blue tones in them. Blue lace agate is one of my favorites. The blue is almost pastel, so soft and dreamy. I've already made the ruffled necklace and ruffled bracelet with blue lace agate. And now I present this fringed blue lace agate necklace (with more blue lace agate goodies to come in the future!).
