THE RARE BEAUTIES WE ALL PONDER   

MANY BUT NOT ALL BEACH STONES ARE BORN OF THIS LAKE

Thomsonite, Isle Royale Greenstone (Chlorastrolite) and Agate are not the only gems I use. "The rare and unusual beauties we all ponder" is referring to the unidentifiable stones found on Lake Superior that can range from beautiful subtle specimens to near freakish oddities. The thing to remember is that not all of these stones are actually born of Lake Superior. They were brought here as glacial till or detritus left from the great glaciers passing over what is now Lake Superior’s surface, dropping what are now some of our treasures from hundreds of miles or more away! You will see these in my work and you will find them yourself, and I invite you to bring them in and talk about making them into something special for you!
