A few years ago I dabbled in jewelry and my grandma sent me up a few stones one year while she was wintering in Arizona. I didn't know what to do with them, I hadn't really been working with stones and I knew I wanted to do something special. Well grandma passed away a couple years ago, I no longer dabble in jewelry but I have a friend who does. I gave her this stone a couple days ago and asked her if she could do anything with it. She got super excited about it and I told her if she was able to do something simple please let me know how much it would be so I could save up some money.
Well she brought me the necklace yesterday and quite frankly the picture does not do it justice. She went above and beyond what I was hoping for and it turned out beautifully. To top it off she knew money has been super tight for us and that the stone means a lot to me so instead of money as payment she wants cuttings from the herbs in our greenhouse :) I'm in heaven. I'm sorry for how long this post has gotten I'm just so excited and happy :)
