NOTE: Both stones below got snapped up: thank you for your tremendous response via convos - woooo!!
In the past few months I have been lapping up some fabulous slabs when I travel and taking a chance on some online (you kinda never know what you're going to get - camera angles, lighting, etc....) and oh my oh my oh my have these rough slabs become art.
These photos are from Ed's camera of two stones (there will be a total of four or five) that he so artfully, gracefully and wonderfully cabbed from my sent-in slabs:
These are a tease of what will arrive in my home in the coming week-or-so -
Please tell me:
HOW AM I GOING TO SLEEP UNTIL THEY ARRIVE????
I think I had a kitten when I saw these pictures.
(hee hee, Heather!)
Ed does something very special with stones; there is an understanding and respect in his work for the material and the person who will someday set it or (like me) covet her collection and open boxes every day for inspiration and excitement.
I hope you drink in the gorgeous magenta of that mookaite (and that dendrite, my goodness!) and the growing green of the laguna agate - may they refill any dry wells you have.
