My Vacation Memories Stone
(Coastal South Carolina USA)
My husband and I rented a mountain cabin in North Carolina this past summer to kayak the beautiful lakes there.
It was raining one of the days and we were bent over from kayaking so much, so we decided to drive into a nearby town. Oooo, stop, I see a stone store!!
We went inside and talked to the owner. I was breathless over all the naturally lovely stones he had. I bought this ocean jasper cabochon and some unakite.
The owner invited us to stop by on our way home. He took us to his house and showed us his personal collection of amazing emeralds, rubies, malachite, meteorites, tourmaline, and many other stones in their natural form.
I was in heaven! It was nice to meet someone as crazy about pretty rocks as I am. When I wrapped the cab, it was my first time using half hard and square wire.
Every time I wear it, I think about that wonderful vacation.
