Rockin' Away!

I've really taken a shine to working with rocks lately, having purchased some awesome diamond bit drills.  Not all rocks are easy to drill through, you would think they were made of iron!  However, most are pretty easy.  Shells and glass are also pretty easy to drill through and produce some really cool results. 
Bay of Fundy rock -- a little copper adornment added.
 

Another Bay of Fundy rock -- I really love the oversize copper jump rings.
 
 
 
A bit of beeswax goes a long way in enhancing these gorgeous rocks.
 

A bit of 'faux' sea glass - tumbled at home!  You can not tell the difference.
 

I found a big bag of fragmented abalone shell at Michael's.  These make fabulous and easy jewelry.
