With Easter around the corner, small smooth objects in shades of pastel colors are popping up everywhere. When I stumbled upon the natural lace stones of Monica J
, I was completely taken, and knew I’d found the objet d’art I’d want to fill my Easter basket.
Monica is from Altus, Ok and finds her smooth oval rocks wherever her travels take her. Each stone has a personality all its own, and has the distinction of being a one of a kind treasure. This one, a favortie of mine, has small white calcite beads that remind me of caviar.
This grouping clustered together would add such a unique touch to a wedding reception table, or as gifts to your bridesmaids. The artist’s mastery of technique is certainly on display here!
I think the stone above with beige ecru thread and flourite bead chips in shades of pale green, lavender pink and blue would inspire me to keep my desktop clean, so that it might command center attention.
Using traditional crocheting techniques, Monica has added a modern touch to a vintage lace pattern.
This geometric design would be at home in any decor.
Many of the patterns remind me of sea urchins, and I don’t have to tell any of you how much I love the ocean. Which one would you choose?
