Drilled river rock rocks!
We noticed what enthusiastic reactions this stone was getting…because it makes really cute, teeny little beads:
…and we loved the feel of donut beads with organically irregular, water-smoothed edges:
…plus the fact that drilled river rock taps into a fashion tip going back to the Stone Age:
…you can’t go wrong with petite tip-drilled pendants!
I made a necklace with these and showed it off at our bead shows, to nice reactions…
Go with the flow, check out beautiful riverstone beads made in the USA (by Mother Nature). They’re a limited-stock find!
