This odd little stone turned up on my worktable yesterday. The first black stone I've done and the first with a barnacle.
I drilled holes in the barnacle so I could sew it to the stone, and tucked a pearly bead from an old necklace inside it. It gives a little rattle when you move it around. I put a little collar of wool around the barnacle so it's just peeking out.
The stitches started to remind me of a butterfly wing and I thought that this was a very fancy barnacle, indeed. Finished,it almost reminds me of an octopus head with an all-seeing eye.
This, and another stone or two, and a stone necklace or two will be in my next shop update on Thursday evening. I'll post the exact time here on my blog, and announce it on facebook and twitter as well.
Have an excellent start to the week, everyone.
