Pieterscite Fossil Beads and Pearls Necklace

I'm a rock and mineral collector. For many years I have picked up rocks, searched for minerals and gone to rock shops.

After my first trip to Franklin, North Carolina as a child, I was bitten.

I also love jewelry, but I could never seem to find just what I was looking for. So I decided to combine both passions - rock collecting and jewelry making.

There are so many beautiful stones and beads to work with. I hope to start a small business and sell my designs online and at craft shows.

I have a lot to learn!

Great Bead Stringing Projects!

You've done a great job stringing beautiful beads into lovely designed beaded jewelry!

I can see your love of natural gemstones come to life in your bead jewelry designs.

Why? Because you don't often see this unique combination of stones.

I wish you much success in your jewelry making endeavors, especially your desire to one day begin selling your jewelry.

Excellent designs, good jewelry making technique!
