When I found this incredible black worry stone, I had the idea to set it vertically for something a little different. I think it is perfect for this stone! This is an extra-smooth, perfect worry stone. Here’s what I’ve said about these necklaces in the past:
As a new resident to the state of Oregon, beach combing has become my new favorite pastime. Just like going to thrift stores and peering into tide pools, I feel like beach-combing is just a treasure hunt. You never know what you are going to find if you take the time to look!
On a recent trip, I was finding many lovely stones and adding them to my bucket. As I did this, I kept choosing one to leave in my hand, because ever since I was a child, I love the feel of a worry stone. And it occurred to me that I could make worry stone necklaces with these beautiful stones! It seems to me that everyone should have a wearable worry stone. So I shifted my focus to look for stones that were the right size and shape for that, and I found so many.
This one features a beautiful smooth black beach stone, perfect for rubbing. It has been tumbled to perfection by the sea. I set it vertically, with a wide bezel and a simple bail, and knotted Labradorite beads, along with a variety of black beads to go with it- Black Agate, Montana Agate, Spinel, Botswana Agate, Snowflake Obsidian, and Onyx- for the necklace. I used a lot of matte black Agate beads that go so well with these beach stones. Labradorite is, of course, an excellent stone for transitions. I Most black stones, and especially black Agate, have many powerful protective and healing properties.
The pendant measures about 2” x 3/4" and the hand-knotted necklace is 26”.
