Nature is a fantastic designer! I’ve come to appreciate it even more now after so many years of drawing and painting. How can there be so much beauty in all those colours and designs?! That was the driving inspiration for my projects; DIY Geodes of all types.

DIY Giant Concrete Geode

Realizing that concrete is so much like stone hatched this idea; large textured slices and cross sections only limited to your imagination! Metallics and colour and crystals… oh my!

Pretty Amazing Polymer Geodes

I’ll admit I love my necklaces and pendants; especially if they have such delicate details. Maybe I secretly want to be “Mother Nature’ so as to be able to control the designs and combinations of colours. I have a few extra ones here.

The other amazing fact about nature is that it is usually not so perfect in every sense; which when making is a great relief! I want to have fun when making; not be obsessed about tiny difficult details. And that wonder of surprise is refreshing as well.

There is constantly a ‘making party’ going on in my ‘visual brain’! I see projects transform into new ones as I think outside the box. Free yourself from convention by allowing ideas to flow…

I can’t help but smile when I see that sparkle under the lights; my form of diamonds!

Rock and Concrete Geode Orbs

Go from flat geodes to orbs; because you know how much I like orbs! ‘And I have always loved my rocks in any design…

Rock and Concrete Geode Orb Planters

The garden is great therapy but if you are limited these geode planters can provide all the same natural beauty. A little bling is welcome anywhere!

The New Modern Tie Dye

No, I’m not a hippie but there is some tying involved in making these designs with dye. ‘Super detailed designs that magically happen and only limited by your choices of colours. Yes; do wear your geodes!

You can wear them, plant in them, display & hang them, shine with them and now sit on them! Yes, you’ll only see it here…
