Covered Stone Pendant

I have developed a bit of a thing for covered stones.  I think they are pretty.  I like how they feel in your hand.  I like making them.  I also like necklaces.  Yesterday afternoon I felt inspired to combine the two and see what I could make.  Here it is.

Can I tell you how much I love it?  I love that the shape of the stone dictates the finished piece.  It hangs beautifully.  Regardless of how it swings around, it looks pretty.  This particular stone came from the shores of Lake Huron and I love that the pale orange colour of the stone peeks through.

Perhaps what I like best about the necklace is that it allows a piece of my rock collection to be close by.  Because you will want to hold it.  Trust me.  It was the first thing my two boys did when they saw it.  It just asks to be held.  And I like that in a piece of jewelery.


  1. Tara that is gorgeous!! I want one. You'll have to put those in your etsy shop. What a great gift for the holidays too.

    Love it!

  2. Tara! I looooove it- to have a little piece of your collection close to your heart at all times. It is very pretty and I love the green. Wonderful job!! :)
