Tuscan memory


This is one of my beach pebbles from Tuscany. I polished it and drilled a hole through it and combined it with a copper spiral. I love to hold these stones, they are so smooth! And I just love the colours!! This one is about 3.5 cm in length. I strung it on a piece of leather and have been wearing it the last couple of days...

There is still time to enter my giveaway, if you haven't yet! I will be picking a winner tomorrow. Just comment on my giveaway post here !

Beautiful colour and I love the simplicity. What a great memento of your holiday. Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning. Your comments were so nice to wake up to and made my day extra special.

Gorgeous stone for a beautiful pendant. This blue is just like turquoise and smart with the copper wire.

Renate! That is lovely! What a wonderful memento...how do you drill a hole in something like that? I am no good at power tools but I would like to be! I have a whole host of rocks I would like to drill but I am not sure how...do tell! Enjoy the day! Erin

Oh Renate,

The color of the stone is wonderful!! The dark blue/green is the color of the sea here at certain times of the year. I think the imbedded cooper coil is perfect!!

And yes you can come lay about on the beach any time. Although it's sand with few rocks :)
