Kentucky Agate, with the stunning bands of red and black is not only Kentucky’s State stone, it has a beautiful book written about it, that explains the science, the geography and explores the beauty of this gorgeous stone :
We were lucky enough to have some of this in the rough we purchased, and David sliced some up this week. How would you use this in Jewelry? Take a look in this week’s Sunday Slices:
Her body was exhausted, but her mind kept racing. Her back screamed to lie down in bed, but she knew if she did, her brain would never slow.
Sleep would elude, once again.
She tossed another log on the fire, turned down the lights and settled into the deep rug that laid in front of the fireplace.
“Alexa, Play Native American Mediation Music”
Calm flute sounds tumbled from the little Echo Speaker and she focused on her breathing.
She followed how her breathe flowed in and out, through all the layers of her body. She allowed the energy to flow past her solar plexus and into her core. Although her body was upright, legs crossed into a triangle, she felt her whole being relax, felt herself settle back into her body, like a blanket that had been shaken to lie on a bed.
She knew that the demands of tomorrow would wreak the same havoc, but she also knew that the process of working through it made a difference in people’s lives.
Her racing mind calmed. She noticed that the log was burned down to embers- had she really been sitting that long?
She unfolded her legs and climbed back to her feet ( let’s face it, she was not a young graceful thing anymore, but she refused to stop moving). now her brain and her body welcomed sleep, and she headed toward the bed.
Layers is a custom cut piece of Agate, cut and finished at SHAK Makerspace by David Braun. The undrilled stone is wire wrapped with rose gold coated wire so you can have a focus and sink into your layers anywhere you wear it.
