Going to rock shows, rock shops and Quartzite, Arizona, I hunt down already polished stones in different sizes and shapes to transform them into “magnetic pins”. After trial and error, I have come up with a nice strong combination that holds scarves and shawls together, avoiding any holes in garments. If a stone needs a smooth back or reshaping, I do that on my lapidary grinding wheel. Using my drill press to create holes for some wire work allows for a bit more creativity in my pieces. I enjoy using both perfect and imperfect shapes.
