Lapidary Mom

See the stone on the left?  That was what the pendant in the middle started from!

and....my mom is the one who transformed that rough stone into a pendant!

Mom spent some time in Arizona over the winter....and kept herself busy learning the ins and outs of the lapidary world.

She learned to cut, shape and polish a stone and put it in a silver setting.




She made me a turquoise pendant 

and gave it to ME - her daughter - on Mother's Day!

and I absolutely, positively LOVE it!
Thanks Mom!

p.s.   your Mother's Day present will be coming soon!
