Peruvian Chrysocolla and Malachite

After having some well deserved (and needed) time off with the girls, I came home and thought about this stone. I had lots of ideas. This one has been around awhile and was mentioned in my blog series about stones.

My work area is my kitchen table, so my things are portable. I have a tool bin, a paper size, low cardboard box for paper and misc stuff and I have plastic dish that holds stones that I have been interested in working on. I go through the big bin every once in a while, pull out candidates to let them sit in my dish while my mind ruminates on designs for them. This one has been waiting awhile. I really had some grand ideas for this sweet stone. However, in the end, I decided that the very best thing I could do for this, was to keep it as clean and simple as possible. Some stones just need to shine. So, here is the finished product, as simple as I could make it with a simple fused bail.

(You see I have no nail polish on? That's because we never got around to doing our nails, we just sat around and talked and had the greatest time doing it.) :)


  1. Hey Tela, A post from you is a great way to start off the week. Happy you had some girl time which is so good for the spirit.
    The grand idea worked..keeping it sweet and simple. The fused bail looks great. The stone looks awesome in its grand wrap. The shadings of color are incredible. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Christine :) Sorry so long getting back to you. I didn't get a notification.

      I'm glad you like this. This is about as simple as it can get, but boy this rock really just needed some way to wear it. It's really incredible.
