Went camping this weekend and got some custom wedding hair clips made :)

This is a Dawn redwood (metasequoia) fossil that I found today at the StoneRose center in northeastern Washington. The Dawn redwood is the only redwood that loses it’s leaves in the winter, and it was thought to be extinct until about 70 years ago. Then it was discovered living in China! They planted seeds from those trees in areas of it’s former range of the northeastern US, and there used to be one in my front yard at college. The confused gardeners thought it was dead and cut it down, but I’m thrilled this fossil found it’s way to me to fill the void! :)

Chrysocolla pendant in sterling silver. This stone has an interesting history; it was used in ancient Greece to solder (fuse together) gold. The Greeks named it for that use, with the Greek words chrysos, “gold”, and kolla, “glue”. The soft stone was also ground and used as pigments in paints. It is also used in jewelry, and is often confused with turquoise, another copper based mineral. Metaphysically chrysocolla is thought of as a calming stone, which helps to ease feelings guilt and fear.
