the other night i just happened to be walking past the bead store and when i went in, not really intending on buying anything, i found these amazing stones!  they have fossils on them, like when you find rocks with fossils on the beach. Cheesy


(sorry about the cat hair Cheesy )


made with purplish shell beads



and the other one - oranges!


with matching bracelet. made with faux pearls, i think?


isn't it gorgeous? i love how it looks like paisley Smiley



this is another necklace i made, i can't remember what the stone is called


and this bracelet matches the previous necklace as well as the first fossil one


hooray! i made the last necklace i posted first, and loved that it could go with basically anything, so i made the darker fossil one for the same reason and i love them all!

The stone at the top is called a Petoskey Stone, Michigan's state stone. http://www.statefossils.com/mi/mistone.html

no idea about the other one though Smiley

The second stone is a jasper, most likely Picasso Jasper from the pic.
