Greetings and salutations, Jool Lovers! In my last post, I talked about how much I love working with heart shaped beads. They make excellent pendants, and adds a little whimsical touch when used as a smaller bead. However, not all heart pendants make a good necklace. I bought this big heart at a gem show in San Diego:
I think it’s a jasper, but I’m not sure. It’s pretty heavy. Solid. I just loved it too much to leave behind!
Sometimes I find wild hearts in nature, just naturally formed into shape. I found this heart shaped rock near the elementary school when I walked over to pick up my kidlets one day:
I found this one a couple of years later in the Palm Desert:
I found this love shaped sugar rock, not too long ago:
But my favorite heart that I found in nature goes back to 2012, when I unwrapped a head of cauliflower and found a lovely green surprise:
Found it just like that, I had to photograph that one for posterity!
Anyway, I thought I’d share some weird valentines from nature this week, and I wish you a happy week and hope you share your love (and maybe some chocolate) with those close to you, and that you gift yourself while you’re gifting to others.
Happy week to all, from Juicybeads Jewelry!
