Beautiful Inspiration

Rocks are one of my passions. I love them! I've been known to fill my purse with them and the purses of friends as well.

When I saw Beach Stones by Josie Iselin, I had to have it. It's been a great inspiration to me and has fueled my rock obsession.

It's also led me to create lots of polymer stones like these.

A must-have book for all rock hounds!

Ack! Another book to buy!! Dang you Kim Cavender!! ;P

Seriously, thanks for the very cool book tip, my dear. It's on my wish list... When is Christmas?

Kim, I am soooo loving your rocks and translucent work. I've been wearing that terrific pendant you swapped with me a LOT, and I always get lots of comments (good ones - lol).

ciao, bella! -Melanie

That looks like a great book. I have been a rock collector since I was small and now my son does the same. We have piles of rocks all over the place (not really, we don't live in a cave, but we do have a lot). We both favor the perfectly rounded ones that you can find in stream beds. Your pieces are very reminiscent of those rocks, only even more delicious because of the fantastic colors and depth. I would love to do a feature on my blog about how you are inspired by rock, if you are interested, you can flickr mail me and I will send you the questions. Thanks so much for linking to my blog. You have sent me a lot of traffic over the past week!
