Michigan Rocks!!!




The First Michigan Rock is making her debut! So many of the rocks I collected there this summer were too small to drill. I collected them anyway. And whipped out the E6000, fried my brain, and made this little beauty. She was the first to be made and the first to be strung. Some E6000 oozed out from under the center rocks, so for the other ones I made that day, I used far less of the stuff and it all stayed underneath where it should be. When it dried, I could still see some of it on this first one, but I don't care. I love this one and her colors and that she was my first. Imperfect and lovely.

Beautiful Christine, love the way the seed bead colors bring out the color in the rocks.

Love it Christine!!!!! I so wish I had a hole maker like you! This is really really cute, now all it needs is a little fake moss. LOL. I can't do the E6000 anymore! You are very brave.

Hey Christine, this is a very gorgeous piece! It's funny, I'm the same way with "first" of things I make ~ they just always seem to be the most special.

Wow! That is gorgeous! I just love the white of the rock you used, and how you stacked it to make such a stunning focal!

I love combo of colors and that white rock - I've never seen a natural rock so white. Very cool.
