I rock hunt in the Antelope/Ashwood area of the John Day river basin in Oregon. 90% of what I post is from this area, from private property where I have permission to hike and collect. The material I find is for personal use only, I do not have landowner permission to sell. Thanks for understanding!

I threw a stone into the air.
It came to earth "ouch"
I now know where.
You can quote me on this, I have the scar.

No, I don't Sketch them out.  I just grab stones and arrange them and I see the piece as I want it in my mind.  I have only sketched out a couple things in the past - metal clay pieces mostly where I would be using the resulting drawing for templates.

Would you ever consider doing a tutorial on how to do a (much simpler) version of something like this? I am mightily impressed. This is simply stunning work.

The Facebook page for this forum has a tutorial I posted several months ago showing how to do a peyote stitch bezel around a cabochon.  That is probably the best place to start.

It's not so much patience, as it is just ambition to get it done.  This piece had a good 72 hours into it.
