When I mentioned shopping for a pet rock, I was referring to the cabochon that I need for the big project in my jewelry-making class. I had to skip out on the lapidarist visit last Monday because of school work, but fortunately there was a big Gem Rock show at a community center here in Central Arkansas on Saturday.
So many pretty rocks! I had a hard time choosing just one. It also didn't help that I wanted to be in and out so that I could return and do some homework before my outing at the symphony that night.
I also picked up 3 grab-bags of assorted misshapen rocks. Not sure what to do with them yet. Typical.
Meet my pet rocks; Dichroic glass, Rainbow Calsilica, and Peruvian Opal.
I finally decided on these three lovelies from Designer Cabochons. The lady wrote the names of each one on their respective baggies. That way, I can totally geek out and name the stone that I will eventually be "rockin'."
See what I did there?
So, which one should I use for my big project piece?
Until next time, ♥.
