High speed rotary tool a large drill press or a dremel tool
A small (2mm diameter) and large (10mm) hollow,diamond-tipped coring bit.
Plastic container to hold water so you can drill your stone under water. Drilling underwater cools off the bit and which will speed up your drilling and keep your stone from over heating.
Adjustable wrench to hold your rock in place while drilling.
Small sedimentary rocks (sandstone, limestone, etc when scouring the beach for rocks, these tend to be well rounded)

There is something so Urban Cowgirl about leather. I enjoy working with leather, using the natural edge of the hide to dictate the final design has to be my favorite part. Heyoka Leather has been an inspiration to me for a couple of years now as well as the beautiful photography of Alexandra Valenti. Above is some of their most recent work together. Enjoy.

Amulet necklaces that reflect my admiration for the folklore and traditions of different native cultures. The wolf tooth from Tibet and the buffalo tooth like those used by American Indians. Often worn as symbols of protection, good fortune or to represent status. These are my own special interpretation as I strongly respect the story of similar adornments throughout history. Made with love for the life lived and the life to be lived. Folkloric Amulets.

Spring is my favorite season for it always brings with it hope and daydreams. Spring is so close.
I have many new projects to look forward to that are inspiring my dreams today. I am excited to share them here as they grow and blossom into reality. I feel my spirit singing with the idea of it all like the singing birds I here outside my window in the morning. I hope you are blessed with inspiration as Spring time quickly makes its way to warm our toes and brighten our days.

Another one of those special dresses from my mother's personal vintage collection. This bright yellow cotton dress is vibrant with personality. A comfy cotton dress that celebrates the 80's. After sitting in my shop for more than one spring time now it is finally on its way home, to Canada. For some fine lady to wear with a smile.

I love how displayed on a bed of moss they look as though they have just been excavated from an archeological site or something.

This is a ring. It is a bit bold for my style but I actually love it and I am keeping one for myself. Being the taurus that I am I can sometimes be bull-headed. I was not on the hunt for these but when I came across them I could not pass them up. Only 3 available and who knows if I will come across such a find ever again. Casted bull head is on an antique brass adjustable band. I'm selling these for $40 if you are interested in having one for yourself comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy Friday and Happy 3.1.13.
