i love the look of stones wrapped in wire and used as a pendant on a necklace. they're so pretty! i bet these would make great gifts too!

you could also hot glue them around a plain wood picture frame and i bet it would look great!

good luck.

You lucky girl with all those stones!
You could wrap them in wire or you could bead a holder for them (a cobouchon - I have no idea how to spell it correctly at the moment).
I think if you started to drill them, some may end up cracking and chipping apart. They you'd have to polish up the cracked bits and the whole blah blah blah.
I think those would be the easiest things....

Is there an extensive beginners section for beading? I got some cool rocks at the Hunstanton Sea Life Center here in the UK, and my boy wants a necklace out of his. I have tried every which way I can to wrap them in wire but it just isn't working for me.

I gotta say-no sooner do I think up a question than I find out something about it on this site!! I'm not getting any crafting done, I'm spending all my time HERE reading about everyone else's stuff!!!

That's IT-I gotta go cut out something. Don't care what. Must sew!

They all look like really nice stones, but here's my latest craft with stones.  It turned out great!

I agree with using the wire to hold the stones in.  If you wanted another idea to do with the stones that wasn't a necklace you could spell your name out with them and glue them onto a board or something like that.

i don't have enough big stones to do this with, but this is an AWESOME craft. like, now i want to go on a hunt for MORE stones so i can make one of these. i've added it to my list of crafts to make once i get my own place and need practical and decorative things Smiley

This wouldn't be a jewlery thing, but you could always make them into a table fountain. You could put them in a container of some sort & get a fountain kit or make one.

you could drill through some of them. i have before, i used my dremel w/ a diamond cut bit.  it takes a long time depending on which stone you choose, and the stone gets really hot,so be careful.

Only dead fish go with the flow.

If you're gonna play with fire, then you're gonna get burned.

wrapping in wire would be the obvious one I'd think of Smiley

you could also find flat metal pieces to use as a backing for pendants. or gluing a tube on the back for stringing. some ideas at least!
