This was so fun!
I bought a few whole geodes and cracked them open myself…with a hammer. The process of watching a somewhat unsightly rock burst open to find beautiful, crystal-like forms is so invigorating! It’s too bad I don’t have any photos of that…it really was entertaining. (Not to mention a great stress reliever) I used the larger pieces for decoration but I wanted to carry this small nugget around with me, so I made a necklace!
1. Small wire, the size of the wire depends on the size of the stone
2. Your stone, this can vary from a geode or crystal to jade or a rugged piece of flint. Up to you!
3. Something small and cylindrical to help wrap the wire
4. A chain of your choosing (I like mixed metals, so I chose gold since my wire was silver)
Let’s get cracking (pun completely intended)
