Introduction I'll bet you know the exact moment you decided to get serious about lapidary. Maybe when you found a pretty rock and turned it into a cabochon, or perhaps you were inspired by a friend or parent. For me, it was an epiphany during a difficult time in my life.I was overwhelmed by physical and emotional commitments, and I realized I needed some "me" time to play. Okay, I asked myself, what was fun when I was a kid? Two things came to mind, The first was climbing trees. Not happening any more; I really hate breaking my bones. The second was rocks. As a kid, I'd loved to find rocks, try to identify rocks and squirrel them away in my dresser drawer. So, I found a lapidary club with a shop and joined. Then, the rocks and slabs started whispering to me . . . They told me their stories and how they wanted to look, and more. I've gotten to know a lot of wonderful people through my lapidary work and I'm looking forward to meeting more through this blog! Let me hear from you!
