UPDATE: Yes, free pendant give away is still going on - see first entry in this blog for details!
Thanks to the sunny day and a cooperative 4-yr old, I was able to take some pictures of earrings made from semi-precious stones to post on the Etsy shop. Who doesn't love stones? They just have their own magical properties . . . I can't tell you how many boxes of "rocks" I've moved from state to state! And yes, rocks in quotes, because they are more that just some random aggregates of minerals - they are memories, they are meaning. And now, years later, my own kids are turning my car into a geological and botanical museum of pine cones, acorns, and yes, rocks.
And for those interested, Huffington Post had an interesting article on shaman stones collected sometime between 4,000 - 4,800 years ago... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/16/shaman-stones-panama-magnet-crystal_n_2481670.html
