Rock on!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you’re likely aware that searching for sea glass is one of my favorite pastimes. Sea glassing is a seasonal thing, and you really need some good storms to churn up the sand and reveal the real treasures. With California’s on-going drought, there’s been a corresponding drought in sea glass on our beaches. I think that’s what got me started on my new collection…small rocks (found along the beach, rivers, or lakes) that have a thin-lined complete circle on them.

When I posted this image on Instagram, one of my followers told me that her family calls these “wish rocks,” and for each full circle, you get to make a wish. I love that! This got me to thinking that if I find these rocks beautiful, then surely there are some jewelry designers out there who must make some fabulous rock jewelry as well! Well, I was right, and I want to share some of the creative designs I found while searching online.

  1. Love these! I should carry them at abode! I have a big stone collection myself. Check out the book..Everyone needs a rock…it’s lovely. 🙂

  2. Cool. Here in Maine we have Jennifer Neilsen who does lovely work with stones from our beaches. She works in silver and yellow gold and occasionally adds diamonds to her pieces. And I’ve read recently about CVC Stones. I’ve been collecting rocks all my life . . . The collection gets heavy to move from place to place!

    1. I’ll have to check out Jennifer Neilsen! And yes, CVC Stones are definitely on the rise in popularity. I keep seeing them around the necks of celebs.

      1. I first saw CVC on The Stone Set and almost immediately after started seeing the popularity among celebs. A simple idea that really seems to have taken hold!
