I love natural stones, and plan on them being the focus of my work here at The Object Studio. Part of the beauty of them is their imperfect forms and colors.

We have discovered a wonderful rock store not too far from us, and it has become a common destination on our weekend outings. These are Red Phantom Quartz crystals, and I am in love with them. I have just ordered diamond tipped drill bits in order to drill holes through them to be able to use them in jewelry. How amazing would these be hanging as a simple necklace pendant?

But alas, in order to turn these into jewelry pieces, I must wait for the drill bits. The bits should ship in the next few days!
