I am very honored and so exciting to have my work featured in a recent issue of "Where Women Create".
I have found that these crocheted lace stones are so much fun to create and each one takes on a look and personality of its own. It has now become an obsession with me to create these and I find myself secretly looking at stones everywhere that have "Lace Stone" potential. :)
This is an original pattern, created for this small stone. The stone measures only approx: 2 5/8 inches x 2 inches (not including the petals and leaves) and is approx. 1 inch high (not including the center stamens).
This stone looks completely different on the bottom. There is a photo of the other side, photo #4. Also to get a feel for the size of this small stone see photo #3 of the stone in my hand.
My prices are determined by thread size, difficulty of the pattern and the time involved in creating them. This piece has much time involved in creating it. The lace stone has been created using #80 crochet thread and a tiny crochet hook.

These stones would be great as pretty decorations in your home. They also make awesome, unique, handmade gifts. They look great lined up on a table or stacked on top of each other. This one could also be used for a paperweight.

If you purchase more than one item, your combined shipping discount will automatically show up on your order as a discounted rate. If you are charged substantially more for shipping than the actual shipping costs, you will receive a shipping refund.

Please let me know if you are located overseas and would like insurance on your package and I will send a revised invoice. I usually do not have any trouble with packages but will not be liable for lost or damaged packages. Often times insurance is not an option on overseas packages.
