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 :)

That is a lovely piece. I've always liked semi-precious stones -- they have such individual character.

 i had no idea what kind of stone it was, my grandma never told me but my friend said it was called a poppy jasper. i just love how the colors of the stone work with eachother. the small stones she added are also jasper
