Large ones. Small ones. Smooth and polished, or rough and faceted. Some with tiny bits of color peeking out, others with the faint glitter of quartz. Yep, I was one of those kids with a rock collection. For some reason, I was fascinated by the unique qualities of each piece I picked up. I would carefully select the prettiest ones, then toss the others aside. You see, there was only enough room for the best rocks.
I recently found one of my rock collections while at my parents' house. After looking through the small box, I couldn't help but wonder what on earth I was thinking when I grabbed some of them. As a child, I saw beauty in these bits and pieces. They were my treasure.
During one of my recent visits to a design trade showroom, I was struck by a beautiful "Grown-up" rock collection. The stones on display were some of the very stones I use in my jewelry. It was so fascinating to see the material in its original form, uncut and sometimes unpolished. I felt like a kid again, wanting to grab my favorites and stick them in my pocket for safe keeping.
Shopping for new gems and beads gives me that same feeling: I am treasure hunting for the prettiest few stones to take home with me. Only now, I've moved on to grown-up rocks. And my treasures become your favorite baubles and adornments.
