my boyfriend was an avid rock collector as a child, semi obsessed, leaving his mother with boxes and boxes of "special" rock friends. how dare she throw those precious thing away! she did have a few of her favorites in a special place and she gave me a few, "maybe you can do something with these!" a year later, i rediscovered that i have not yet done a thing with those rocks. with her belated xmas gift dwindling we came up with the genius idea to finally make her that necklace she had so patiently waited for. sorry we are procrastinators, J & A <3 U!
